The most successful show launch in MSNBC history, The Rachel Maddow Show debuted in September of 2008. The show has garnered several awards, including an Emmy and a GLAAD Media Award, and was named one of the top shows of the decade by the Washington Post in 2009. Maddow’s awards include the Walter Cronkite Faith & Freedom Award and two Gracie Allen Awards, among many others. Her book, Drift: The Unmooring of American Military Power, debuted at number one on The New York Times bestseller list in March 2012. In Drift, Maddow lends her distinctive voice to the examination of America’s bloated military and slide toward perpetual war. Before The Rachel Maddow Show, Maddow appeared regularly as a political analyst on MSNBC and as a host on Air America Radio. She joined Air America at its inception in 2004, cohosting Unfiltered. After the cancellation of Unfiltered, Maddow began her two-hour weekday radio program, also called The Rachel Maddow Show, which aired until January of 2010. Rachel Maddow grew up in Castro Valley, California and attended Stanford University. She attended Oxford University on a Rhodes Scholarship where she earned her doctorate in political science. She lives in New York City and western Massachusetts with her partner, artist Susan Mikula. This past speaker page shares her podium presentation as well as the Q&A.
