Gang of 5 - pile of messages printed out

This week on Hear Cincinnati, host Brian Niesz is joined by community reporter Lucy May, podcaster Scott Kyser and senior manager of enterprise/investigative Meghan Wesley to discuss the surprising thing that is keeping some women from moving up in the workforce, recent celebrity news, changes at Blue Manatee Bookstore, a stolen police cruiser, and more.

Brian is then joined by WCPO I-Team reporters Craig Cheatham, Hillary Lake, and Paula Christian to unpack Cincinnati City Council's so-called 'gang of five' court appearance and 600+ pages of text messages which reveal gossip, name-calling, rumors of extramarital affairs, high-school level backstabbing and the secret side to how City Hall business really gets done.
