In the early 1970’s, CBS axed its slate of hit country-themed sitcoms. The Beverly Hillbillies, Green Acres, and Petticoat Junction were just three of the shows that bought the farm.

Mo talks to Linda Henning (star of Petticoat Junction), author Sara Eskridge and TV critic Alan Sepinwall about the sitcom slaughter.

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.
