Mobituaries with Mo Rocca
Mo Rocca has always loved obituaries. In season 1 of Mobituaries he introduces listeners to the people who have long intrigued him—from the 20th century’s greatest entertainer … to the Civil Rights pioneer who is completely forgotten … to sitcom characters gone all too soon. Even if you know the names, you’ve never understood why they matter…until now. And if you enjoy these episodes, look for more stories of great lives worth reliving when Mobituaries returns for season 2 in fall 2019.

I was surprised to hear about Billy Carter from a human perspective. I was a child when he was alive. I often heard him referenced in tv shows and wondered about him and his legacy. I love the way this was presented.

Even a Mobituary about my historic crush, Thomas Paine! (Yup, gin be-blossomed schnoz and all.) I learn something in every episode. Great podcast!
