Even if you have no clue who Richard Simmons is (like me) check this out

This is some empathetic and generous story-telling. I also really like the music and they do a great job at catching the flavour from whatever decade or place they're talking about. Great to see this trend in podcasting where it's not about getting cheap applause but really trying to illuminate human complexity.
