Congressman Brad Wenstrup often flies under the radar because he's not loud and braggadocios.

But the Cincinnati Republican is anything but boring.

Wenstrup joined That's So Cincinnati podcast to talk mostly about his life away from Capitol Hill. This episode offers a glimpse of the human side of the podiatrist-turned-politician. Wenstrup shares stories about:

-- How a dying AIDS patient in the mid-1980s helped shape his view on serving others

-- Adopting a little girl last year and being the father of two young children at age 60

-- As a combat medic, providing medical treatment to "the enemy" at Abu Ghraib prison

-- The adventures of driving back and forth from Cincinnati to Washington each week with his wife, 5-year-old son and 1-year-old daughter

Also in this episode, Enquirer transportation reporter Hannah Sparling joins TSC hosts Paul Dehner Jr. and Jason Williams to discuss the serious problem of landslides in Cincinnati.
