Imagine instead of James Bond it was…Jaime Bond, Javi Bond, Bondissimo.  Well, guess what, y’all? The white, British character at the center of Ian Fleming’s super-successful franchise was actually based on a Dominican man. Porfirio Rubirosa was a diplomat, playboy who spoke five languages, an international polo champion, a race-car driver, apilot, and he became the richest man in the world⁠—twice. 

This podcast is the true story of Rubirosa’s life, told by Christopher Rivas. Who is he? He's a Dominican-American, author and storyteller…AND a lifelong fan of James Bond. Ever since he learned about Rubirosa and the heritage they share… He's wondered: how different might his life have been if his hero growing up looked like him? And what does Rubi’s incredible and complicated life have to teach me about love, success, family, Hollywood, code-switching, white-washing, and the roller coaster of finding Chris' true self in a world not made for Brown folks like him?

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
