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

July 31, 2015: A new issue of TheBurg hit newsstands this week, and Larry and Paul mark the occasion by talking about a few stories in it. They discuss the city's biggest competitor in the downtown parking system, which the state appears to be subsidizing. They also talk about the theme of collective responsibility, both for city housing and at city hall, and some facts about the racketeering charges brought against former Harrisburg Mayor Steve Reed earlier this month.

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

July 24, 2015: This week, Larry and Paul recover from the big-ticket news binge of last Friday's podcast and chat about this week's more quotidian developments: the Broad Street Market is looking for a new manager, Kipona is moving back to the Riverfront, the Civil War Museum wants to stay open and all over town there are some really big trash cans.

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

July 10, 2015: Earlier this week, Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane announced a sweeping set of criminal charges against former Harrisburg Mayor Stephen Reed. The 17 charges, approved by an investigating grand jury, encompass 499 counts including bribery, theft and racketeering. The charges mostly surround Reed's alleged use of public borrowings to improperly divert funds to personal interests, such as acquiring artifacts for a never-realized network of museums. On this week's podcast, Larry and Paul talk about the charges, what it was like covering Reed's arraignment and what's to come in the continuing investigation.
