VIDEO: Rachel Maddow Gives Castro Valley High Journalism Students Exclusive Interview

Student journalists of the Castro Valley High School newspaper, the Olympian, scored an interview with the former Castro Valley resident, television host and political commentator at her book reading and signing in Berkeley last week.

Though hundreds of people showed up in Berkeley to see MSNBC television host Rachel Maddow speak about her first published book Drift: The Unmooring of Political Military Power, a small group of student journalists were the ones to score an exclusive interview with the CVHS alum.

Right before taking the stage at Berkeley's Martin Luther King Middle School, she sat with six students from The Olympian to talk about what it was like growing up in Castro Valley, how she stumbled into a media career and the commencement address she gave at her 1990 CVHS graduation.

Castro Valley Patch (also a proud alum of CVHS) shot the video (accompanying the story), but couldn't have done it alone.

Thanks to the film crew: Lily Carrell, Suzanna Chak, Rebecca Fong and Melody Moteabbed, along with their advisor, Matt Johanson, for inviting us along.
