Ravens’ start has “super” company, but finishing is what matters

The "soul crusher" wasn't there when Baltimore needed it in the fourth quarter of Sunday's near-collapse in Philadelphia.

The many late mistakes and scare will be the story of a Ravens win in Philly

Luke Jones and Nestor discuss the many sins and errors that led to a near Eagles comeback in Philadelphia that would have really soured a bye week. Instead the Ravens are 5-1 and talking about needing to get better.

Bringing federal solutions for local problems during pandemic

Economist Anirban Basu brings sage wisdom and some real ideas and concepts for bringing back revenue and stimulating industry in the aftermath of this COVID-19 crisis.

Our Baltimore Positive kicks into overdrive this week as we sit with the legendary Barbara Mikulski to discuss the state of the world and how our city can thrive in the future.

Several times in this conversation, the always feisty Mikulski eschews “no-stalgia” and says she’s not here to talk about the past. Needless to say, we learned a lot during our first Baltimore City sit down on the campus of Johns Hopkins University.

This is Episode 7. We will launch two more chats with Sen. Mikulski on Wednesday and Friday of this week.

Next week, Episodes 10, 11 and 12 will feature an incredibly insightful chat with Damian O’Doherty of KO Public Affairs about how Columbia and the towns between Baltimore and Washington affect the whole region.

Our next live Baltimore Positive chat will be Thursday, May 30th at State Fare in Catonsville with UMBC President Freeman Hrabowski. The show starts at 9 a.m. We hope to see everyone with Retriever Fever in The ‘Ville.

We will do many #BaltimorePositive chats in the coming days and weeks. We expect that no conversation will be finer than this one with Barbara Mikulski.
