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

April 17, 2015: In a special extended edition of the podcast this week, Larry and Paul speak with their guest, Harrisburg Mayor Eric Papenfuse, about myriad issues from his first year-and-change in office. They discuss public safety, schools, mayoral power and Papenfuse's political history and future ambitions - and also get the mayor's endorsements for the 10-way City Council race this year.

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

Feb. 27, 2015: Larry and Paul try (and mostly fail) to speed through the many topics of a newsy week. Among the topics of discussion: the once-a-year Airing of Greivances before the city's parking committee, a partial victory for lawyers, guns and money, the rejection of a land sale and the newest edition of TheBurg. And the answer to a piece of Harrisburg trivia. Q: What drives Harrisburg residents to council meetings in droves? Clue: It rhymes with "balsa music."
