Rachel Maddow celebrated her 40th birthday on stage with approximately 2500 of her closest friends at the 2013 SXSW Interactive Festival. After confessing to the big day at hand, the veteran MSNBC host then charmed attendees with an entertaining presentation that covered points from her recent book "Drift: The Unmooring of American Military Power'.
She further endeared herself to the SXSW audience by spending much of her session answering audience-submitted questions that covered a wide range of topics. If you were not fortunate enough to attend Maddow's thought-provoking session in March, then enjoy the hour-long video of her talk by clicking on this link.
