Rachel Maddow speaks to On Second Thought host Virginia Prescott at the Fox Theater on Oct. 13

The Rachel Maddow Show is the biggest draw on MSNBC’s primetime line-up. The show tilts against Fox News’ Sean Hannity in the high stakes battle for cable news viewers. Both hosts have large and obsessive audiences, and both have seen double digit jumps in ratings since congress launched an impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.

That story was roiling when Rachel Maddow made her way onto the stage, at an event sponsored by A Cappella Books last Sunday, Oct. 13. On Second Thought host Virginia Prescott interviewed Maddow at the Fox Theatre. Today’s episode is part of the interview from Sunday.

Maddow’s new book, Blowout, is about the global oil and gas industry. The book ties together some of Maddow’s fixations on Russia, political corruption, the erosion of democratic governance and double dealing in Ukraine.

Maddow also addressed the audience before her interview. Hear more about the Orange Revolution and Yulia Tymoshenko in her full speech, included below.
