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.
