Hear Cincinnati Podcast: Police caught lying; Cincinnati Zoo discusses Henry the hippo's death

This week on Hear Cincinnati, host Maxim Alter, digital reporter Lucy May, digital editor Meghan Wesley and 9 On Your Side anchor Chris Riva talk about the Cincinnati Zoo's loss of a beloved family member, spooky real-life "paranormal experiences," the NYC terror attack and its ties to Cincinnati, Wasson Way, an inspiring mom who didn't let anything stop her from accomplishing her goals, a mystery at the Newport Aquarium, daylight saving time and more. 

Maxim then talks with investigative reporter Craig Cheatham about his extensive research into how local police are disciplined when they break the law -- and some of the most egregious cases he found.

Later on the podcast, reporter Evan Millward talks with Cincinnati Zoo director Thane Maynard about the passing of Henry the hippo and how Bibi and Fiona are handling his absence.
