CEO & Founder

Adrian Bono (nee Royo Caldiz) is a Spanish journalist, Founder and CEO of The Bubble. He is also a host on Infobae and its video streaming network InfobaeTV, where he is featured daily providing readers with information about current events in Argentina and the region both in English and Spanish.

He was the Deputy Editor for the Buenos Aires Herald’s website, where he hosted the tongue-in-cheek online series ‘Trending Now,’ and contributed regularly on the online site of financial newspaper Ambito Financiero. He also created The Argentina Independent’s greatly popular, expat-oriented Weekly News Roundup column, which offered readers a comprehensive, sarcasm-filled summary of Argentine news from 2010 to 2013.

Adrian began working in politics as media liaison for the Spanish government in the city of Rosario, when at the young age of 18 he was tapped by the President of the Balearic government to be one of the three founding members of an NGO dedicated to the promotion and cultural development of the Balearic community in the region.

He was later hired as Marketing Director for Premula Corp., where he led the Media, Trends and Fashion departments and developed several high-profile operations in Buenos Aires and Punta del Este.

In between stints, he contributed as marketing advisor for Global Games Group in Germany and was a co-executive producer of the highly successful Extra Mile Endurathon in Buenos Aires.

Adrian was born in Palma de Mallorca, Spain, and obtained his certificate in journalism from the TEA School of Journalism and a bachelor’s degree in Journalism and International Affairs from the Universidad de Palermo in Buenos Aires.

He has lived and worked in the United States and the United Kingdom and currently resides in Argentina.

Host – The Bubble Podcast

Fernando Farías is a radio presenter, producer and journalist, and one of the hosts of The Bubble Podcast.

He graduated from the National Broadcasting Academy of Argentina, the ISER, and has worked in various stations in Buenos Aires including Aspen FM and Metro FM. Fer is currently in charge of one of the English-language programs of Argentina Public National Radio’s Foreign Service. In addition, he works as a newswriter and announcer for the National AM 870 news service. He also founded the bilingual show BA Cast: The Buenos Aires Podcast.

Born and raised in the Gran Buenos Aires, he was educated only in public, state-ran institutions, hence his barrio, blue-collar, keynesian-peronist-ish bias, which translates into a mild distrust towards all things Palermo, including ethnic, vegetarian and spicy food and many of the things that expats cherish like unfettered free-markets and invasive customer service (conversely he doesn’t take it well when expats criticize miga sandwhiches or local pizza).

He owes his little command of English to private weekly lessons with Mrs. Wilma (no foreign language lessons at his public school, thank you neoliberal policies) and to a time living in London but not as an expat as it’s not called that way when someone from the Third World goes to live in the First World.
