Welcome to TheBurg Podcast, a weekly roundup of news in and around Harrisburg.

April 17, 2015: In a special extended edition of the podcast this week, Larry and Paul speak with their guest, Harrisburg Mayor Eric Papenfuse, about myriad issues from his first year-and-change in office. They discuss public safety, schools, mayoral power and Papenfuse's political history and future ambitions - and also get the mayor's endorsements for the 10-way City Council race this year. "Being mayor is a tough job," he tells them. It "requires standing up for what's right, pushing when you need to push, and trying to bring things into the public light when they need to be brought in."
