It Took A Life-Changing Illness To Get Adam Flores-Boffa To Listen

Parish Photography

Adam Flores-Boffa was born and raised here in San Antonio. He was a congressional staffer for many years for both Charlie Gonzalez and Joaquin Castro. His job often required him to keep his opinion to himself, and caused him to harden on a number of issues. It took nothing short of a life-changing illness to get him to really listen to someone who disagreed with him.

The following track was recorded at the October 4, 2016 Worth Repeating with the theme "I Heard The Word." Worth Repeating is Texas Public Radio's live storytelling event series.
