Missing Richard Simmons

Missing Richard Simmons is a podcast about the sudden disappearance of Richard Simmons. Richard being the health and fitness guru/energizer bunny.

Back in February of 2014 he suddenly stopped leading his exercise classes and communicating with any friends, at all. With no explanation whatsoever. He totally and completely removed himself from public life.

Three years in, his friend/acquaintance Dan Taberski, decided to investigate and find out what happened. The podcast has only six episodes, (4 have been released at the time of writing this blog). And is totally and completely compelling.

It feels similar in ways to the SERIAL podcasts.

Several times listening I kept thinking, truth is stranger than fiction. This story is a mix of celebrity, sadness, mystery, nostalgia, intrigue, humor, compassion, and surprise.

I had been reluctant at first, but now I am all in.

There is an incredible story here.

  1. Richard has helped so many people. I know he is “over the top” but I believe he is genuinely sincere.
    As of this morning the report is that he is fine.
    Still I’m interested in this podcast.
