The Most Destructive Industry on Earth?

An Important Conversation with Rachel Maddow

Thursday, October 3 

8:00 PM 

“Democracy either wins this one or disappears.”

For more than a decade, Rachel Maddow has been issuing clarion calls about the myriad dangers facing America. Now, in her new book, Blowout, she is sounding the alarm about a peril that weakens democracies, pollutes oceans and rivers and props up authoritarian thieves: Big Oil and Gas. 

Taking readers on a global tour of what she sees as the industry’s greed and ineptitude, from Siberia to Oklahoma City, she calls on Americans to stop subsidizing the wealthiest industry on earth and check the influence of its executives. 

On the occasion of the publication of Blowout, we are honored to welcome Ms. Maddow, the host of her own Emmy-winning MSNBC program and author of DRIFT: The Unmooring of American Military Power, which debuted at #1 on the NYT bestsellers list. 

Moderated by W. Kamau Bell, host and executive producer of the Emmy-award-winning CNN docu-series United Shades of America with W. Kamau Bell
