Gear up for the next cult audio obsession
— The New York Times

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.

Do you have leads, theories, or Richard stories? We want to hear them. (And we might use them on the show!) Leave Dan a voicemail at 402-93-SWEAT (402-937-9328).
