The Adventures of Memento Mori: A Cynic's Guide for Learning to Live by Remembering to Die is a bi-weekly, 30-minute podcast exploring death. Satirical and philosophical, the show follows host, D.S. Moss, as he attempts to reconcile his own impermanence and live a more meaningful existence. Problem is, life keeps getting in the way.
D.S. Moss is a cultural producer unwavering in his pursuit to relate unconventional stories. A natural explorer, he uses satire to examine the absurdity of the human condition. Moss maintains an interdisciplinary practice of conflating storytelling techniques.
Moss was born in 1975 in Weiser, Idaho, but spent his early years living in a Christian cult in Hailey, Idaho. At the age of nine, his father moved his family to the Alaskan wild to open an insulation business. In 1989 – during the height of the grunge scene – he moved to Seattle with his mother. After high school, Moss skipped college and enlisted in the United States Marine Corps. He worked as Intelligence Analyst, leaving in 1999 as a respected Sergeant. In 1996, two years into his service, he met actor Harvey Keitel, which changed everything. From that moment, he abandoned his dream of being a super spy for the more dangerous work of filmmaking and screenwriting. Six years later, he graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a B.S. in Radio, Television and Film.
Moss is a member of the Writer’s Guide of America, and has been a resident at The MacDowell Colony and IFP Media Lab. He currently lives and works in Brooklyn.
