The Daily Miracle of a producing and delivering a morning newspaper


We are continuing to raise the bar at Baltimore Positive all summer long with great guests and meaningful conversations with newsmakers, reporters, politicians and civic-minded folks who want better things for our city and community.

No one has dedicated more time and more words to local issues than C. Fraser Smith, who joined us for three spirited segments filled with knowledge, insight and the history of Baltimore’s renaissance.

This is our second segment, inspired by Smith’s upcoming book on the deadlines, editors and people that created modern newspapers.

Episode 19 was extremely timely, focusing on the 33rd anniversary of the death of Len Bias and the aftermath in College Park at the University of Maryland.

Our final podcast with C. Fraser Smith will focus on Nestor’s pet political passion: what made William Donald Schaefer tick.

Our next few weeks of Baltimore Positive chats are now set:

This Thursday, June 20th we will be at Faidley’s Seafood inside Lexington Market with Mayor Jack Young at 9 a.m.

Next Thursday, we move back to Catonsville for a lunch chat with legendary educator Nancy Grasmick at Jennings Cafe in Catonsville at 11 a.m.

And in a special holiday “double bill,” we’ll be back at Faidley’s Seafood on Tuesday, July 2nd with Matt Gallagher of Goldseker Foundation and legendary Baltimore sports agent, attorney and author Ron Shapiro beginning at 11 a.m. and going through a beautiful summer lunch with crab cakes.

Please follow and enjoy these #BaltimorePositive chats as we continue to discuss ways to improve our community.

And if you see Don or Nestor around town or on social media, let ’em know that you’re listening and viewing our Baltimore Positive chats.
