12 MISS­ING RICHHARD SIM­MONS

WHAT IS IT?

In 2014, the pre­vi­ously out­go­ing and me­dia-friendly celebrity trainer Richard Sim­mons re­treated from pub­lic life with­out warn­ing, de­tach­ing him­self from all but a hand­ful of friends and fam­ily. Over six episodes, his (for­mer) friend and tness class mem­ber Dan Taber­ski tries to gure out why, and if he’s okay.

WHY SHOULD I LIS­TEN?

Even if you know very lit­tle about Richard Sim­mons, this podcast is both fas­ci­nat­ing and oddly touch­ing. From the ex­tracts of Sim­mons, you can see why so many peo­ple are left won­der­ing where he went and why: he touched a lot of lives be­fore dis­ap­pear­ing.

HOW LONG AND HOW OF­TEN?

Half an hour and all six episodes are now avail­able for down­load. Un­like many podcasts, it only works if you lis­ten to each episode se­quen­tially. Taber­ski has vowed not to make any more episodes of Miss­ing Richard Sim­mons un­less some­thing truly amaz­ing hap­pens. With­out want­ing to spoil things, that feels un­likely at this point.
