Rubirosa

Porfirio Rubirosa was an international polo champion, a diplomat, treasure hunter, raced Ferraris, flew B52 bombers, spoke five languages and twice became the richest man in the world. Rubirosa was the original inspiration for Ian Fleming’s 007. This is his true story told from my point of view as Christopher Rivas, an Afro-Latino actor and storyteller. How different my life might have been had Rubi made it to the big screen? This podcast is about love, sex, color, code switching, white washing, success, Hollywood, self-hate, colonization, inclusivity, fake-it-till-you-make-it, and the roller coaster of finding one’s true self in a world that was not made for you
