2020 has been a feast of insanity and stress. But even in a pandemic, there is still reason to be thankful. And this Thanksgiving season, after 86 episodes of Angry Americans, we’re extremely thankful for all the important, inspiring and iconic guests that have joined us. And few have been more popular than Rachel Maddow (@Maddow). [9:10] Loved by the left, often attacked by the right, but respected by all, Rachel recently disclosed on national TV that her partner of over 25 years was hit exceptionally hard by COVID. She courageously shared her story—and issued a warning to all before the holidays. It was a brave, powerful, important moment that had the country buzzing.
This Thanksgiving, our Paul Rieckhoff (@PaulRieckhoff) offers brief reflections on the most tumultuous year of our lifetimes, and presents a replay of a fantastic, fascinating and heart-warming conversation recorded last year pre-pandemic with Rachel Maddow in New York City inside a garage at the Classic Car Club Manhattan. Rachel breaks down what it’s like to interview presidential candidates, analyzes the media, and talks about her rise to national prominence and international fame. And she also shares her perspective on fishing, the story of her first car, and what really makes her happy–even when times are tough.
It’s the perfect conversation to reflect on how much has changed in American in 2020, how much needs changing, and how much we can all still be thankful for. Whether you’re driving across the country, keeping it small with your pod, or working a double-shift on the front-lines of the pandemic, it’s a conversation that will leave you with the 4 I’s that serve as the main course of the dinner table in every episode: information, integrity, inspiration and impact. Pour yourself a glass of something good, pull up a chair, join our extended Righteous Media family, and sit down for a heart-warming double helping of delicious holiday-time content.
