On February 15, 2014, fitness guru Richard Simmons disappeared. He stopped teaching his regular exercise class at Slimmons, cut off his closest friends, and removed himself from the public eye after decades as one of the most accessible celebrities in the world. Nobody has heard from him - and no one knows why he left. Filmmaker Dan Taberski was a Slimmons regular and a friend of Richard’s. Missing Richard Simmons is Dan’s search for Richard - and the deeper he digs, the stranger it gets.

Really interesting podcast about Richard Simmons a larger than life character that's gone underground. Dan balances humour, and storytelling for a very compelling podcast.
Intriguing, well researched ,entertaining and throughly interesting. I look forward to each episode.
Great podcast so far! The storytelling is in depth and there's enough context for those of us who weren't really familiar with the topic to get up to speed. Excellent production, too. Really good job!
