The Pennsylvania Project

Our mission: To boldly showcase the political, cultural, and environmental challenges facing contemporary Pennsylvania, to solicit, explore, and question potential alternatives.

About The Pennsylvania Project

Our vision at The Pennsylvania Project is a better Pennsylvania.

To achieve that vision, our mission is to showcase the political, cultural, and environmental challenges facing Pennsylvania, and to explore their solutions.

But more important than solving the problem correctly, is to solve the correct problem.

All episodes of The Pennsylvania Project are divided into three parts: You, Them, and Me.

Part 1 is all about You: your questions, your opinions, your solutions, your whatever.  But rather than a call-in format common to most talk radio shows, The Pennsylvania Project is an “e-mail in” format.  Have something to say?  Send us a question!

Part 2 is all about Them, so each episode we host a guest to help showcase the political, cultural, and environmental issues facing Pennsylvania.

Part 3 is my turn, your ‘caster Ken Krawchuk, focusing on a particular issue that “sticks in my craw”.

All in all, the show is thought-provoking, novel, and fun.  And the goal is not just to complain, but to explore workable solutions, whether it’s defusing the abortion debate, ending the opioid crisis, reducing gun deaths, or a host of other challenges facing Pennsylvania.  That’s what we’re about.  We’re The Pennsylvania Project.

Ken Krawchuk

Ken Krawchuk


The Pennsylvania Project is hosted by Ken Krawchuk, a native Philadelphian who was raised in a row home in the Feltonville part of town.

He has run for Pennsylvania Governor three times on the Libertarian ticket, facing Tom Ridge in 1998, Ed Rendell in 2002, and Tom Wolf in 2018, setting record vote totals for a Libertarian gubernatorial candidate in each successive race.

Professionally, Ken is an Information Technology entrepreneur and holds three U.S. Patents related to database theory.

Additionally, Ken is a professional public speaker, a Distinguished Toastmaster, a graduate of the Abington Citizens’ Police Academy, and author of the novel Atlas Snubbed, a pastiche parody sequel of Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged.

In his spare time, Ken enjoys whitewater canoeing, year-round overnight backpacking on the Appalachian Trail, and craft IPAs.

He and his wife Roberta have three daughters and three grandchildren (so far) and live in Abington Township, a Philadelphia suburb.

20. Folkin’ Around in Schwenksville, with Jon Detweiler

20. Folkin’ Around in Schwenksville, with Jon Detweiler

Ken’s guest is Jon Detweiler, second in command at the nation’s longest-running outdoor music event, the Philadelphia Folk Festival, why it still draws thousands for the fifty-eighth consecutive year, and why it’s so much better than Woodstock. And rather than listener-submitted questions, Ken sets up shop in the middle of the Fest campground to interview a steady parade of random Festers.
