Legacies of the Dearly Departed
CBS News correspondent Mo Rocca has always loved obituaries. Each episode of Mobituaries covers his favorite dearly departed people and things, from the ‘Latin Lover’ who redefined Hollywood masculinity in the 1920s to the TV dog who introduced kids to literature in the 1990s. Every Wednesday, hear fresh takes on famous legacies and uncover people worthy of their overdue moment in the spotlight. Even if you know the names, you’ve never understood why they matter until now!
The Mobituaries book is out now.
If you love the stories of the remarkable people (and things) that Mo profiles on his Mobituaries podcast, then look for the Mobituaries book on November 5, 2019. It’s filled with new stories you haven’t heard on the podcast. You’ll learn about Marlene Dietrich, the pre-presidency of Herbert Hoover, Ada Lovelace – the 19th century mathematician credited as the first computer programmer, and the strange afterlife of Einstein’s brain. You can purchase the book on Amazon or Barnes & Noble, or at your favorite independent bookstore. The audiobook is now available on Audible, the Google Play store, and Apple Books.
