Post-Life Profiles: “Mobituaries”

Mo knows obituaries.

CBS Sunday Morning correspondent and humorist Mo Rocca created Mobituaries, an irreverent but deeply researched appreciation of the people (and things) of the past who have long intrigued him—from an unsung Founding Father to the first Chinese-American superstar, from Neanderthals to the station wagon.

The Book and Podcast introduce readers and listeners to fascinating stories forgotten or never fully examined.

From the unruly presidential brother with his own beer to a 1980’s pop song that brought glory to a 2019 sports team….

From the 20th century’s greatest entertainer to the Civil Rights pioneer who is completely forgotten…

From sitcom characters gone all too soon to the original “Siamese Twins” and their quest for a normal life.

Mo weaves tales that are at times enthralling, silly, disturbing, and always spot-on true.
