KARIN POWELL, “Pittsburgh Mom”

In celebration of Mother’s Day, our guest this week is a true “Pittsburgh Mom.” Karin Powell is one of the most beloved motherly figures of Pittsburgh’s cultural district. Through her son Christopher’s work with the Pittsburgh Opera, many of the city’s performing artists have come to know her as “Ma.” This week on ‘Burgh Vivant she shares her perspectives on motherhood, The Steelers, and her touching experience of immigrating to America from Berlin during the height of World War II. Listen to “The Full Martini” – the complete unedited interview in audio podcast to get the dish on Karin’s rendezvous with Peyton Manning, what music best accompanies vacuuming, and good ol’ German drinking songs!
