MISSING RICHARD SIMMONS
Podcast by Dan Taberski
Whether you've done it or not, one of the most known fitness personalities is Sweatin' to the Oldies with Richard Simmons. His short shorts, tank tops and socks are equally as memorable as it was his uniform. With his curly hair, bigger than life and persona, people were drawn to his energy and commitment to others.
As his empire was built on those that simply wanted to connect and to have fun, he made himself available through his LA studio, tapes, appearances and more. But in recent years he vanished! The man who was connected and even made himself available to bus tours by his home, was no longer there!
Dan Taberski goes on a journey via his podcast to find out what happened to Richard Simmons and where he is? Along the way, he interviews those who attended his classes, people who worked for him and those whose lives crossed path with him. In a means to connect with his family and Richard himself, he begins to generate a number of theories on why Richard chose this form of behavior to disconnect. This podcast is an easy listen that can be enjoyed in a few hours.
Podcast from SERIAL + THIS AMERICAN LIFE
We've been stalking everywhere online for the release date of the next SERIAL and yet, all we know is that Sarah Koenig has been seen in various places suggesting that she could be working on the next season. It wasn't until we heard about S-Town (from the creators of SERIAL and THIS AMERICAN LIFE), that we realized that we could be temporarily satiated with this twisty murder mystery that takes place in a backward town when a person states that no one has investigated a murder that has taken place in a small southern town that even the residents mock.
The host, Brian Reed, looks at the town and how they are connected with one another while investigating a murder that takes on a whole other story the more Brian investigates.
This podcast is definitely worth listening to and generates so many emotions as you learn about the people involved as well as seeing how Brian becomes wrapped up in this tale.
