So much respect for Kim Goldman. What a wonderfully insightful woman! She has come through the worst nightmare of a lifetime and is so gracious to all of her guests. At the same time she questions all involved without ridicule or holding back on the directness of the question. Best podcast I’ve heard, and I am a podcast junkie.

Witness testimony was a pivotal element of this trial. Some witnesses went from bystanders to household names. Fame was garnered and careers were launched during the Trial of the Century. 25 years later, Kim sits down with two of Nicole Brown Simpson’s neighbors from Brentwood, the Los Angeles neighborhood where the murders occurred. Kato Kaelin and Jill Shively witnessed events that occurred the night of Ron’s death. Kato went on to reality TV infamy, while Jill made a quick buck and has lived with the fallout of that decision ever since.

Rank #2: We The Jury | 7

When the Trial of the Century began, twelve jurors and twelve alternates stepped into the Los Angeles County Court House to perform their civic duty. What they couldn’t have expected was that over the next nine months, they would be sequestered from public life and essentially have their entire lives put on pause. After all those months of testimony it took them mere hours to render one of the most controversial Not Guilty verdicts in history. In this episode of Confronting, Kim speaks with two of the jurors, Lionel Cryer and David Aldana. Both Lionel and David recall their experiences as part of the jury, reflect on the verdict they rendered and discuss how they would vote 25 years later.

Rank #3: Camp OJ | 5

Podcast cover

O.J. Simpson’s murder trial was broadcast in its entirety on television, and millions of Americans watched. The story was controversial, sensational, absurd, and the world became invested in the outcome. In this episode Kim explores the media circus with Dan Abrams and Shoreen Maghame – the “Trial of the Century” launched both of their careers. Hundreds of media outlets covered the trial and all of them converged outside the courthouse in what became known as “Camp O.J.” The non-stop media coverage allowed everyone in the country to connect with the case. Every little detail of the case was scrutinized: the credibility of the LAPD, the reputations of witnesses and attorneys, all the way down to Marcia Clark’s hair. Kim also speaks with Henry Schleiff, who took over Court TV shortly after the trial ended, about how the coverage changed the face television forever. Everyone, including your co-host, Nancy Glass, takes a hard look at the insanity of the non-stop media coverage.

In Episode 104, Kim goes back to the courthouse where her brother’s trial took place for the first time in 20 years. Kim sits down with former Assistant District Attorney Bill Hodgman and prosecutor Chris Darden, who both fought and failed to find justice for Kim’s brother. Kim presses to understand what went wrong with the prosecution’s case and learns that many believed the prosecution never had a chance. They’ll talk about Chris and Bill’s differing opinions on whether the prosecution was ready to go to trial or not. The two men reflect on the outcome and decisions that were made, most notably, Darden’s decision to have O.J. Simpson try on that black glove, which lead to the infamous phrase, “if it doesn’t fit, you must acquit”.

Rank #5: What's Your Son Worth? | 8

The Goldmans didn’t get justice during the criminal trial, but the family had a second chance by filing a civil case against Simpson for the wrongful death of Ron. This time, it wouldn’t be “the People vs. Orenthal James Simpson”, it would be the Goldman’s name on the lawsuit. Kim speaks with Dan Petrocelli, the Goldman’s attorney for the lesser-known civil trial. Dan reflects on everything from his strategy in the courtroom, to the pressure he felt to win the case. Kim also speaks with Pablo Fenjves, a witness during the criminal trial who was later hired to ghostwrite Simpson’s book, If I Did It –  a hypothetical account of the night of the murders. Pablo and Kim discuss how this book came to be and Pablo expresses what he learned as he wrote what was essentially a pseudo admission of guilt with Simpson.

This episode is different than what we told you would be coming your way. You were supposed to hear from jury members who acquitted O.J. Simpson in the criminal trial. Then something happened.

Executive Producer, Nancy Glass, spoke with Malcolm to see if he or his client would have a conversation with Kim. This episode includes their call in full, completely unedited.

Enough is enough. Celebrities have always been held to a different standard of the law. In this story, that fact holds true. Simpson was able to skirt the law, even after his track record of his abuse and battery of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown. On this episode of Confronting, Kim explores the difficult and complex subject of domestic violence. Kim speaks with a close friend of Nicole Brown as well as with the advocate from the City of Los Angeles who handled Nicole’s case over 30 years ago. Finally, Kim speaks with policy expert Esta Soler, the founder of Futures Without Violence, who continues to fight for reforms around domestic violence in our criminal justice system and our culture.
