This week we feature Otter Productions on our podcast. Herb Otter and Jill Redding told us many great stories of their acting careers. Listen to Herb share his experiences in iconic Baltimore movies such as The Diner and Cry Baby, and on Homicide:Life on the Streets and Jill tell about what it was like also being in Homicide: Life on the Street and her season of playing Dolores, the barmaid in season 2 of The Wire. You can see Herb, Jill, and the rest of the Otter Productions crew perform their hilarious murder mysteries in many venues in and out of Maryland, such as The Black Eyed Susan paddleboat in Baltimore, The Pride of the Susquehanna in Harrisburg, The New Freedom Railroad in New Freedom, and on the Western Maryland Scenic Railroad in Cumberland. For more information see

We are excited to announce that the House of Bankerd State of the Arts Podcast debuted on 9/20/2016! The purpose of our podcast is to promote the arts in the state of Maryland, to inform, educate, and entertain our listeners with interviews featuring local artists, directors, comedians, artisans, musicians, and others associated with the arts community. Our first interview was with theatre actor/director John Desmone, who just directed his 100th show! John spoke about highlights of his career, memories of favorite shows, told stories of adventures (and misadventures) that happened during a few of his shows, and some of his favorite students from his days as a second grade teacher!

Our podcast can be found on and is available on iTunes!
