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. Listen to the podcast The New York Times calls "a cultural phenomenon."
Headlong is Dan Taberski’s documentary podcast that explores the lives of overlooked people, moments and events in our culture. Season 2 is Surviving Y2K. Season 3 is Running From COPS.

Season 2 - Y2K

Loved the stories that are told through the lense of Y2K. Compelling listening. Didn't listen to season 1.

The documentarian makes the podcast

I have never left a podcast review before until now. But I just had to this time. Dan is so warm, funny and likeable he just steals the whole show. I have now binge watched all 3 of his podcasts in less than a week.

Thank you so much for the stories you tell in such an honest and personable way. Cannot wait for the next thing you come up with!
