This was incredible, thanks a lot for this episode. The world honestly is a better place for having Richard Simmons in it. Besides being extremely entertaining, he's probably helped more people than we can even comprehend and obviously genuinely cares.
If he can come back, I'd love to hear more about his relationship with Howard Stern, if that's not verboten. I think it's an even more fascinating dynamic than the one with Letterman, because they were actually friends outside of the show. One of the greatest anecdotes I've ever heard is how he showed up at the Stern show in full biker gear, just stood around silently making people nervous because they didn't know it was Richard. Like it was his own piece of performance art.
