What’s New and Wild in Harrisburg? TheBurg Podcast, April 2022

It’s a “wild” time of year—a time to come out of hibernation and rediscover the great outdoors. Our April podcast guests explore Harrisburg’s and Pennsylvania’s wild side, from the Susquehanna River to its parks and outdoor recreation.

The state’s first director of outdoor recreation, Nathan Reigner explains how big of an outdoor gem Pennsylvania really is.

The Pride of the Susquehanna Riverboat’s new president of the board, Kim Rice, explains what it means to be responsible for such an iconic symbol of Harrisburg, as the riverboat gets ready to launch a new season.

Richelle Corty of Harrisburg’s Wildwood Park previews this year’s Art in the Wild exhibit—composed of all-natural materials—and explains what that artwork naturally does for the community.

This month’s “Most Harrisburg Thing” is off the wall. Really. Lawrance Binda, editor of TheBurg, sorts out a recent controversy that started with grocery store artwork.
