Your Maryland

Your Maryland

by

Since 2002, —-Your Maryland—- hosted by Ric Cottom, has presented little-known human interest stories from Maryland’s past. Beginning with accused witches and the murderous career of John Dandy in the earliest days of the colony, through Morgan State’s fabled —-Ten Bears—- in the 1970’s, the show covers nearly four centuries of heroes, scoundrels, floods, fires, riots, plots, athletes (two-and four-legged), beautiful spies, brilliant writers, misunderstood pirates, and ghosts. All of that color, suspense, and humor is part of your Maryland.

In the lead-up to election day in 1856, rival political gangs solidified Baltimore’s reputation as “Mobtown.”
