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.

DEI is much more than a buzzword. How would you define Diversity, Equity and Inclusion? You can compare your definition with one shared by a local expert—who’s actually a national expert on the subject. Monica Gould of Strategic Consulting Partners provides plenty of food-for-thought, including three tips for how we can be more mindful of DEI in our daily lives, especially in the new year.


SAD is another timely acronym. Dr. Melissa Brown of UPMC Central PA explains how to keep Seasonal Affective Disorder at bay through the dark winter months. SAD can turn darker, toward suicidal thoughts—and she tells us how to recognize those warning signs as well.


NLP is a local acronym associated with warm, neighborly connections. Neighbors of Lower Paxton has spun off a new nonprofit, Bike a Better Path, and executive director Forrest Healey shares some of their heartwarming holiday success.


It’s full steam ahead, into the holiday season, for Lawrance Binda, editor of TheBurg, in his “Most Harrisburg Thing.”
