Podcast: A place of friendship at the border closes

On the US-Mexico border, where San Diego ends and Tijuana begins right next to the Pacific Ocean, there’s a place called Friendship Park. Opened over 50 years ago, it was intended to be a symbol of the bi-national community that stretches across the border.

Host: Gustave Arellano

Guests: Kate Morrissey, border reporter for the San Diego Union Tribune
