‘Missing Richard Simmons’ Podcast Is The New ‘Serial’ And It’s Super Addictive
One listen, and you'll be hooked.
Everyone knows of Richard Simmons, the 1980s workout star, known for his addictive personality and wild workout attire. But this podcast digs into what you don’t know about Simmons—more specifically, the fact that he’s been “missing” from the public eye for three years. Yes you heard right, missing. And if you’re anything like me, this news comes as a surprise.
Filmmaker and once-upon-a-time friend of Simmons, Dan Taberski, created the podcast in the hopes of getting to the bottom of this mystery. His podcast poses the question: is Simmons actually missing, or just taking a break from the public eye? He spent 16 months producing the six-episode podcast trying to find the answer.
