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.

A lot happened at City Council this week, and it's all covered all in TheBurg's newest podcast. Burg editor in chief Larry Binda and city reporter Lizzy Hardison offer a preview of the 2018 budget, consider the city's options for exiting from Act 47 next year, and sit in slack-jawed wonder at the Harrisburg's peace treaty with National Civil War Museum. They end with a discussion about community policing techniques, which Lizzy writes about in this month's issue of TheBurg.
