This week on Hear Cincinnati, host Brian Niesz, digital reporter Lucy May, editor Meghan Wesley and content coordinator Scott Kyser discuss Fiona, undocumented immigrants, Mark Zuckerberg's testimony to congress, the Paterno TV movie, new reports on smoking while pregnant and more.

Brian then talks with investigative reporter Hillary Lake about 16-year-old Kyle Plush, a Seven Hills School student who died Tuesday while being crushed by a seat inside his minivan. Days after he suffocated, numerous questions remain about what went wrong and why the teen boy is dead even as he pleaded with a 911 operator to send help.

Next, Brian chats with reporter Dan Monk about the Rev. Jesse Jackson's visit to Cincinnati -- and why the civil rights activist is calling the grocery company "evil."
