Soup Weather: What’s in Harrisburg’s Pot? TheBurg Podcast, Nov 2021

This month’s podcast is like a giant pot of gumbo, chock-full of Harrisburg happenings.

First, we talk soup, and so much more, with Dr. Rod Mortel of the High Hopes for Haiti Foundation. He explains why he’s not worried about his foundation’s school, and its many additional programs, despite the country’s struggles.

Meet TheBurg’s resident film critic Sammi Leigh Melville, and enjoy an expanded “The Most Harrisburg Thing” with Lawrance Binda, TheBurg’s editor extraordinaire.

Every month, TheBurg Podcast introduces you to some of Harrisburg’s most fascinating people. Their stories start on the pages of TheBurg magazine, and are expanded here on TheBurg Podcast… because “there’s always more to the story.”

TheBurg Podcast is hosted and produced by longtime Harrisburg-area journalist Karen Hendricks. Visit her website here.
