This week on Hear Cincinnati, host Maxim Alter, digital editor Meghan Wesley, digital reporter Lucy May and content coordinator Scott Kyser talk about the origin of 4/20 as the national holiday for marijuana, April the giraffe's pregnancy finally ending, Aaron Hernandez's death, the McDonald's workers who led police to the Cleveland Facebook shooter and US Bank Arena's rush to rebuild. 

Maxim then talks one-on-one with Pike County Sheriff Charles Reader about the one-year anniversary of the Rhoden family massacre: Are investigators close to solving it? Are they using lie detector tests? Were DNA tests conducted on the dogs at the crime scenes? Does he still think the killers are local? They talk all that and more. Then, later, digital reporters Pat LaFleur and Amanda Seitz explain why craft beer is causing hundreds of delays for Cincinnati’s streetcar.
