Description

No news is entirely bad news, as long as it's being delivered by Mo Rocca. A correspondent for CBS Sunday Morning and a frequent panelist on NPR's Wait, Wait... Don't Tell Me!, Rocca has a knack for presenting current events in a way that's both informative and hilarious. In Mobituaries, Rocca applies these skills to history, memorializing people and objects past. Some of these playful, heartfelt pieces cover subjects Rocca considers overlooked or underrated; In others, he illuminates the lives of people whose names we may know, but whose true stories we may not, including Thomas Paine and Audrey Hepburn. In conversation with Wait, Wait host Peter Sagal, Rocca will discuss the power of rethinking--and finding humor in--the past.
