Metabase on MacOS fails to start

I’ve been using metabase for a while on MacOS (v10.13.5) with no issues. I installed Metabase to a new MBP and it just hangs on the splash screen when staring. This occurs ever after uninstalling and reinstalling.

Has anyone seen this before?
Can anyone point me in the direction of log files, etc that I can use to debug, etc?


Logs should be in this menu shown here:

Thank you for that!

The log is interesting, it shows that there was a 2hr gap from startup until the URL was available:
