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

Dec. 31, 2015: In this "Year in Review" edition of the podcast, Larry and Paul take a long look back at a year of ups and downs in Harrisburg. They talk about developments and setbacks in Midtown, crime across the city and headline-grabbing stories of good community policing, and the political persona of Mayor Eric Papenfuse coming into focus through initiatives and battles throughout the year. They also upgrade everyone's favorite podcast feature by picking out their Most Harrisburg Thing This Year. And Paul gets a kudos from Larry for his city-as-fixer-upper metaphor.

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

And an additional thanks to the folks at the Free Music Archive, who hooked us up with some sweet "Auld Lang Synes" from the public domain. You heard versions by the United States Marine Band and Amil Byleckie.
