Grappling with a father’s alcoholism becomes more complicated when a family lives on two sides of a border. Obed Silva joins host Krys Boyd to discuss his father, who his family left behind in Mexico to escape his drunken violence, and what it means to grieve for a complicated man who caused so much pain. His book is called “The Death of My Father the Pope: A Memoir.”
