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.

Whether you’re on team dog or team cat, we have you covered in this month’s pet-themed podcast.


“Second lady of Pennsylvania” Gisele Fetterman explains why she—along with her famous rescue dog Levi—will continue advocating for legislation to increase state dog licenses.


Then we go “behind the cover” of TheBurg’s July issue. Harrisburg artist Steph Perez explains how she created Mack the cat’s portrait—along with more than 100 others—through her popular pet portrait business Fur and Feather.


Our musical friends, Harrisburg band Yam Yam, stop by to chat about—and preview—their new single and upcoming new album.


Every podcast ends with a final word from Lawrance Binda, Editor of TheBurg, as he shares his monthly TMHT (“the most Harrisburg thing”). July’s TMHT marks a turning point in Harrisburg’s pandemic recovery.
