Breaking Down Barriers: TheBurg Podcast, April 2021


What are some of Harrisburg’s challenges—and successes—in terms of breaking down barriers?

Brad Jones, Harristown president and CEO, talks about reinventing the city of Harrisburg’s image through economic development and adaptive reuse projects.

Maestro Stuart Malina of the Harrisburg Symphony Orchestra explains how the 90-year old organization continues to break down the barriers and stereotypes that often prevent people from enjoying the arts.

And are you a Friend of TheBurg? Kelsey Tatge and Lawrance Binda of TheBurg address how the membership program Friends of TheBurg breaks down barriers and establishes closer ties between the public and our very own news organization.

TMHT: Editor of TheBurg Lawrance Binda plants a springy “The Most Harrisburg Thing” to wrap up the show.

Because “there’s more to the story,” this episode expands several stories from the pages of April’s magazine: “We Re-Built This City” / “Turning the Page” / And Friends of TheBurg celebrates its one-year mark with membership available here.

TheBurg Podcast is hosted and produced by Karen Hendricks, a lifelong journalist who also dabbles in PR/Marketing. Visit her website here.
