‘Missing Richard Simmons’ Host Dan Taberski Joins ‘Heaven’s Gate’ Podcast (Exclusive)

8:33 AM PDT 10/5/2017 by Natalie Jarvey

The 10-episode project, which will explore what led to one of the largest mass suicides in U.S. history, will be hosted by Glynn Washington.

Dan Taberski is reuniting with the team behind Missing Richard Simmons for a new podcast that will explore what happened inside the Heaven’s Gate cult.

The Missing Richard Simmons host is joining Heaven’s Gate as a writer. The 10-episode project will be hosted by Glynn Washington of Snap Judgment.

Washington told The Hollywood Reporter that the podcast won’t just focus on the mass suicide of Heaven’s Gate members; it will also delve into the lives of the people who joined the group and seek to answer questions about how the suicide happened.

Washington spoke to family members, survivors and other people involved with Heaven’s Gate for the project. “These people are real people who made real choices for real reasons, and we wanted to explore that,” he said.

Washington explained that his interest in the topic comes from his own background growing up in a cult (his family was a part of a religious organization called the Worldwide Church of God). “The lens through which the project is viewed is my own,” he said. “I can’t do this without bringing my own background to these questions.”

Washington said that Taberski was an important addition to the team. “He’s got a great touch as a writer,” he added. “Bringing Dan on is a demonstration of how much excitement [there is] about this project and the commitment to making sure that it works.”

Heaven’s Gate hails from Stitcher, which is a part of E.W. Scripps’ Midroll Media podcasting division, and is being produced in collaboration with Pineapple Street Media. It is set to premiere Oct. 18. The trailer can be listened to here.

    Interesting… maybe a lot of people will listen? Not sure, the entire thing has pretty much been completely forgotten.

    It ought to freak out the younger generation… they’ll find it impossible to believe that anyone could be so completely ignorant and gullible to believe something that is so patently and provable wrong.

    (Provable, but you’d have to accept the scientific method which you don’t).

    • sawyer Says:

      What scientific method don’t I accept according to you? What do you offer as proof that what Ti and Do taught was wrong?

      It’s so easy to say things as if they are so, but aren’t they simply opinions without bringing even logical conjecture to the table?

      How do we get to the position of thinking we know so much about what is not possible when we have such little grasp on what is clearly possible.

      Humans don’t even have a realistic clue how thoughts are formed yet there is probably nothing that is more apparently real.
