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

July 31, 2015: A new issue of TheBurg hit newsstands this week, and Larry and Paul mark the occasion by talking about a few stories in it. They discuss the city's biggest competitor in the downtown parking system, which the state appears to be subsidizing. They also talk about the theme of collective responsibility, both for city housing and at city hall, and some facts about the racketeering charges brought against former Harrisburg Mayor Steve Reed earlier this month.

Special thanks to Paul Cooley, who wrote our theme music. Check out his podcast, the PRC Show, on SoundCloud or in the iTunes store.
