It’s the five-year anniversary of Stay Tuned! Stick around until the end of the episode for a special segment. 

NPR’s Nina Totenberg has covered the Supreme Court since 1975. Known for her scoops and deep knowledge of the Court, Totenberg has spent her career following an institution that has, in recent years, veered sharply to the right. Preet speaks with her about her new book, Dinners with Ruth: A Memoir on the Power of Friendship, which details her relationship with the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, her trailblazing career as a woman in journalism, and whether there’s hope for a less radical Supreme Court. 

Plus, New York Attorney General Letitia James has filed a sweeping civil lawsuit against Donald Trump and his family business. But what happens next?

In the bonus for CAFE Insiders, Totenberg responds to listener questions about SCOTUS term limits, friendships on the Court, and how RBG changed her. To listen, try the membership for just $1 for one month: cafe.com/insider
