Celebrating Three Types of Culture: TheBurg Podcast, May 2022

We celebrate a whole lotta culture on TheBurg Podcast’s May episode: AAPI culture, soccer culture, and the culture of family-owned restaurants.

Meet three Harrisburg-area personalities, all featured within TheBurg magazine’s May issue:

  • Ellen Min, with the Harrisburg Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage group known as HAAPI
  • Toan Ngo, head coach for Pennsylvania’s first and only semi-professional women’s soccer team debuting this month, Eagle FC
  • Otis “O.D.” Harrison, owner of OD’s Fish House, Harrisburg

In this month’s “The Most Harrisburg Thing (TMHT)” editor of TheBurg Lawrance Binda drives home a point, about major city projects underway.

TheBurg Podcast is hosted and produced by longtime Harrisburg-area journalist Karen Hendricks. Every month, TheBurg Podcast expands stories from the pages of TheBurg magazine because “there’s always more to the story.”

Backstories that coordinate with this episode include:

Heritage Heralded | Kicking Off | Food and Family
