Magazine-style news podcast that introduces you to the most fascinating people in Harrisburg and Central Pennsylvania. Hear their authentic stories, straight from every month’s issue of TheBurg—with a different twist—on TheBurg Podcast. Because there’s always “more to the story.” Hosted by Karen Hendricks. TheBurg is a monthly community magazine devoted to PA news, business, art, culture, music, food, health, sports and more; Lawrance Binda, editor.

Have opinions about reds and blues? Do you even attempt to talk politics? Whether you answered these questions with a sigh or snark, this podcast is for you.

It’s your survival guide to election season, with tools and tips for holding civil conversations, maintaining relationships and navigating social media.

Three guests, all members of the nonprofit organization Braver Angels, offer their advice and wisdom for bridging the political divide:

Linda Beck of Harrisburg, Dauphin County’s first moderator for Braver Angels.

Karen Cotter, Braver Angels’ blue state coordinator, eastern Penn.

Karen Ward, Braver Angels’ red state coordinator, western Penn.

This episode is an expansion of “On the Side of the Angels,” from the Oct. 2020 pages of TheBurg.

And “The Most Harrisburg Thing” for October is a colorful counterpoint to pandemic life, according to TheBurg Editor Lawrance Binda.

TheBurg Podcast is hosted by Karen Hendricks, a lifelong journalist who also dabbles in PR/Marketing. Visit her website here.

TheBurg is a monthly community magazine based in Harrisburg, Pa.; Lawrance Binda, co-publisher/editor.
