She is the second woman justice to be appointed to the US Supreme Court, having served in the post for more than two decades.

Now in her 80s, Ruth Bader Ginsburg has become a bona fide cultural icon to a generation of millennials, many of which weren’t even born when she first took her seat in the high court.

In a new biography, journalist Irin Carmon and legal expert Shana Knizhnik trace the career and life of the so-called “Notorious RBG.”

Guest:

Irin Carmon, national reporter for MSNBC, where she covers gender, politics and law. She is the co-author of the book, “Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg” (Dey Street Books/HarperCollins, 2015)
