Our Senator Chris Van Hollen joins us at MACO in Ocean City for a wide-ranging conversation about life in Washington and the potential and promise of The Red Line, Penn Station and the FBI headquarters coming to Maryland.
First elected to the House of Delegates in 1966, the local statesman Ben Cardin will complete his public service to our citizenry 16 years after heading to D.C. as a Maryland Senator. Joining Nestor at MACO in Ocean City, the Baltimore champion says he's got plenty left to do before he departs The Capitol in January 2025.
Day 19 of the Maryland Crab Cake Tour sent us back to the beach and a day of MaCO Conference and chats with politicians and leaders in Ocean City. Our crab cake at Longboard Cafe honored our pal Batman and we got wet with a local at Sinepuxent just over the Assawoman Bridge.
On the 20th day of the Maryland Crab Cake Tour, Nestor got his first chance to experience the MACo conference of all of the state's stakeholders at the beach and chat with a wide group of folks trying to make The Free State better.
On the fifth day of his 30-day, 30-crab cake journey in 2021, Nestor spent the morning at the J.M. Clayton crab picking facility in downtown Cambridge and rolled north to Chestertown to spend the afternoon discussing D.C. politics with Heather Mizeur.
Legendary Philadelphia blues rockers Tommy Conwell and The Young Rumblers return to the Baltimore area for the first time in two decades and Nestor asks why it's still fun to put the band back together almost four decades after the Hammerjacks magic of "I'm Not Your Man."
Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh privately vowed to help Nestor Aparicio with his media credential bullying situation with Chad Steele in any way he could. Weeks later, Aparicio was exterminated. Harbaugh then told him he was unhappy about it but powerless because it wasn't his department in Owings Mills.
As the Maryland Crab Cake continues to tell the good work being done locally, Nestor gets better educated on the modern efforts, fundraising and research that The Leukemia & Lymphona Society continues to do to keep folks like his wife alive after cancer strikes. Let Katie Stegman, her beautiful 4-month old baby and Dominick Iaquinto tell you about their vision to make Nestor the "Visionary Of The Year" in 2024.
“What did do you do wrong, Nestor?” “Why would the Ravens throw you out?” “Why are you the only one in the local media whom they’ve thrown out?” “Why have they treated you this way?” “WHAT DID YOU DO WRONG!?!” I am fed up with these questions from Baltimore sports fans so I wrote to the owner because these questions are his to answer. Letters to John Harbaugh and Eric DeCosta are also coming soon.
Local developer Jeff Ratnow attempts to educate Bill Cole and Nestor about plans for the new Harborplace space and the financial realities of the Inner Harbor and downtown to be an economic generator for the entire city and community.
