Nina Totenberg on the power of friendships
Nina Totenberg is a name—and voice—heard often on public radio. As NPR's Legal Affairs Correspondent, she has been breaking down the news of the Supreme Court for listeners since 1975. Early in her career, a phone call to a source began as a law lesson, and ended with a near 50-year friendship... with Ruth Bader Ginsberg.
This friendship is one of many featured in Nina Totenberg’s new book, Dinners with Ruth: A Memoir on the Power of Friendships. I recently had the pleasure of speaking with Nina Totenberg about these friendships, the importance of journalism, and much more. This is our conversation.
Dinners with Ruth: A Memoir on the Power of Friendships by Nina Totenberg was published by Simon & Schuster.
Marginalia was produced at KMUW Wichita and is part of the NPR Podcast Network.
