The Port Richmond Blues

Port Richmond is a Philadelphia neighborhood known for its great polish food, the best pound cake in Pennsylvania, and a working class, blue collar vibe. But for the better part of the past couple years, the neighborhood has been turned upside down. Two different infrastructure projects have claimed the trolley, the ramp from I-95, and the main road through the business district. Today on the podcast, we're following John McDevitt through Port Richmond to meet some of the characters who live there and find out how the neighborhood is reacting to the changes.

The Inventor vs. the Spotted Lanternfly

The Spotted Lanternfly has invaded Pennsylvania, and it's kicking bark and taking names. So far its only natural predators are humans who enjoy squishing bugs, and we're losing. But there might be some hope for the humans -- a secret weapon named Rachel Bergey. She's 14, she's an inventor, and she's on a mission to save the trees and kill the lanternflies. Jim Melwert (@JMelwert) joins the podcast to talk about the coolest science fair project we've ever heard of. Check out his article about Rachel on kywnewsradio.com.

8 Hours of Hell

On Wednesday, August 14th six police officers were shot in North Philadelphia. KYW Newsradio covered the harrowing standoff that night and into the morning.

The Skeleton in the Museum, Part 2

This is part two of a story we started last year about a remarkable woman named Carol Orzel. Carol was 59 years old when she died from a very rare bone disease. Her last wish was for her body to be donated to the Mütter Museum -- so scientists could study her skeleton and learn more about the disease that killed her. KYW reporter Mark Abrams (@MAbramsKYW1060) is back on the podcast today to tell us how Carol's wish was fulfilled. You can hear the first part of the story wherever you get your podcasts (it's episode #37), or at kywnewsradio.com.Read more about Carol Orzel on kywnewsradio.com. To find out more about the Mütter Museum, check out their great website at muttermuseum.org. Find out more about the great work done by Skulls Unlimited at their website, skullsunlimited.com.

Haircuts for the Homeless

Jawuan Jones is not your typical barber. He finds a spot in the city -- anywhere, really, from a sidewalk in Center City to Love Park -- sets up a chair and a generator, and hangs up a sign that reads "Free Haircuts for Homeless." Then the line starts, and Jawuan gets to work. Today on the podcast, KYW Newsradio reporter Cherri Gregg (@CherriGregg) takes a trip to Jawuan's office, the median at the center of Broad Street just south of City Hall, to find out more about the barber to the homeless.

#52: The Search for the Rosies

During World War II, a lot of working age American men were drafted or joined the armed forces. They left a lot of jobs back home that needed to be filled to power the war effort. In many cases, the jobs were taken by women, who became known as Rosies (as in Rosie the Riveter). Now, 75 years after D-Day, there's a movement underway to find the Rosies who are still with us. Scroll Down producer and reporter Charlotte Reese takes over the podcast this week with the stories of two Rosies who helped in the war effort, and one woman has made it her life's mission to reunite the working women of World War II across the country.
