Hear Cincinnati Podcast: FC Cincinnati's West End plan; Ohio's medical pot problem

This week on Hear Cincinnati, host Maxim Alter, digital reporter Lucy May, digital editor Meghan Wesley and 9 On Your Side anchor Kathrine Nero discuss a Dayton native's connection to "Black Panther," a program to help students with learning differences, Kroger's culinary strategy to fight Amazon and Walmart, Thing-A-Ling pastries, a proposed change to SNAP and more.

Maxim then talks with government and politics reporter Amanda Seitz about FC Cincinnati's proposed strategy to transform the West End with a $200 million soccer stadium -- and why parts of the community are fighting back.

Later, reporter Lisa Bernard-Kuhn explains why Ohio is racing against a September deadline to have  enough doctors to prescribe medical marijuana -- and how the program could fail before it even begins.
