Chicago Humanities Festival Presents: Rachel Maddow In Conversation

Saturday, October 12, 7:30 pm

It takes a mind like Rachel Maddow’s to dissect the convoluted chaos of today’s current events and emerge with a single cause: not ideology, she says, but oil. In Blowout, the Emmy award-winning MSNBC host traces how the greed of the oil industry has corrupted the world, causing disasters both environmental and political, including, Maddow says, the Russian interference in the 2016 election. Through painstaking reporting, Maddow’s book reveals the extent to which the interests of oil companies influence every aspect of our lives, from the personal to the political. In conversation, Maddow will address how we can, and must, curb the power of the oil industry, for, as she warns: “Democracy either wins this one, or disappears.”
