'Missing Richard Simmons' And The Nature Of Being Known
The podcast came to an anticlimactic end as a mystery, but it says a lot about the demands of being a public figure.

The six-episode podcast Missing Richard Simmons dropped its final episode on Monday, two days ahead of schedule. For a project nominally devoted to finding out more about what happened to one-time fitness guru Richard Simmons, it wasn’t very satisfying by that standard. Host Dan Taberski concluded, in effect, that Richard Simmons was safe and physically healthy and had withdrawn voluntarily from public life without much fanfare, which is … pretty much what we already knew. 

But as unsatisfying as the show was as a mystery, it was fascinating as a study of what we ask of public figures — of what we feel entitled to ask of them.
