Episode Description: Man Enough is proud to introduce Rubirosa, a podcast by Brown Enough host and Man Enough guest host, Christopher Rivas, in partnership with Stitcher. Rubirosa is a documentary podcast produced by Stitcher and hosted by Christopher Rivas (Call Me Kat) in which Rivas explores the life of Porfirio Rubirosa, the man who inspired the character of James Bond. Besides being a Dominican diplomat, Porfirio was an international polo champion, a race-car driver, and a pilot. He was a renowned casanova, who was married five times to women including Barbara Hutton and Doris Duke. He spoke five languages and twice became the wealthiest man in the world.Rivas, a Dominican-American actor, author, and storyteller, not only offers a portrait of Porfirio’s life but also investigates the whitewashing of Hollywood and considers how his childhood may have been different had more of his favorite movie heroes looked like him. The character and life of Rubirosa reveal so much about the dichotomy of masculinity across cultures and generations while Christopher Rivas and expert guests work to unravel the mysteries of a man that was so infatuating to the men and women of his time. We’re sure you’ll enjoy this episode as much as we did!
