Hear Cincinnati Podcast: An officer's accidental overdose and an 8-year-old boy's suicide

This week on Hear Cincinnati, host Maxim Alter, digital editor Meghan Wesley, digital reporter Lucy May and 9 On Your Side anchor Kathrine Nero talk about Fiona meeting her mom, a Cincinnati home owner who could be locked up over building code violations, how Colin Farrell pretended to be a surgeon at Christ Hospital, what's next for The Banks, a teen who overdosed on caffeine and died, a man who sued his date for texting during a movie and more. 

Maxim then talks with East Liverpool Police Captain Patrick Wright about an officer in his department who wiped white powder off his shirt during an arrest this week and needed four doses of Narcan to survive. Then, later on the podcast, reporter Evan Millward breaks down the case of Gabriel Taye, an 8-year-old boy who committed suicide two days after a camera caught a bullying incident at his West Price Hill school.
