Unhappy Hour

From professional whiner and award-winning drunk Matt Bellassai comes Unhappy Hour, the podcast about everything we love to hate. Join Matt and his special guests as they vent about all things political, personal, and cultural. Because nothing brings people together like good alcohol and good complaining. 


Missing Richard Simmons

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.
