Hear Cincinnati Podcast: Meeting Fiona, new drugged driving stats and FC Cincinnati's stadium

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 what it was like to come face-to-face with Fiona at the Cincinnati Zoo and some secret scoop Lucy got on her. The panel also talks neighborhood revitalization, a Bunbury lawsuit, the fire that damaged historic buildings in Loveland, a Cincinnati-shot film getting international recognition and more. 

Reporter Tom McKee then gets us caught up on the latest in the retrial of former UC officer Ray Tensing. Transportation reporter Pat LaFleur explains why drugged driving is now more common on our roads than drunk driving. And 9 On Your Side sports anchor Ken Broo talks about FC Cincinnati's push to get funding for its own stadium -- and if it has any shot of succeeding.
