Nina Totenberg at NPR headquarters in Washington, D.C., May 21, 2019.

NPR’s Nina Totenberg sits down with Alexia Ridley to talk about her new book, Dinners with Ruth, and her career as a journalist.

Nina Totenberg is legendary for her work as a Supreme Court reporter. She's spent a long, storied career covering the Court, and rubbing elbows with the justices - some revered, some reviled. In her new memoir, she talks about her work and her friendships - especially her friendship with another legend - Ruth Bader Ginsberg.

Alexia Ridley joined WUGA as Television and Radio News Anchor and Reporter in 2013. When WUGA TV concluded operations, she became the primary Reporter for WUGA Radio. Alexia came to Athens from Macon where she served as the News Director and show host for WGXA TV. She's a career journalist and Savannah native hailing from the University of Michigan. However, Alexia considers herself an honorary UGA DAWG!
