Thomas Paine wrote Common Sense, the pamphlet that inspired the American Revolution. So why did only six people show up at his funeral?
Mo finds out why this essential Founding Father has never gotten his due – and, with the help of a Tony nominated Broadway songwriting team and the Daily Show’s Lewis Black, stages a rollicking memorial service for Paine on the spot where he dropped dead.
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.
