This week on Athen's News Matters, Alexia Ridley sits down with Auditor Stephanie Maddox to discuss the ongoing controversy of the alleged criminal wrongdoing of two high-ranking ACC officials, UGA researcher Ralph Tripp discusses a medicine that could be a game-changer in the fight against covid, an interview with a UGA pharmacy professor about the risks of vaping, a story on renewable energy sources, and Alexia Ridley sits down with this week's panel to discuss news and politics. 

Alexia Ridley talks with this week's panel: Chris Dowd, Gwen O’Looney, and Stephanie Allen.
