    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.

    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 podcast made me cry

This podcast isn’t for the faint hearted, Kim Goldman is so heartfelt and dignified I really can’t believe she had the courage to do this. I also learned a lot and enjoyed the narrative from the Goldman side rather than the ‘defence’ team.

Confronting OJ Simpson

This is a very good detailed podcast and I have such admiration for Kim Goldman putting in so much effort into all the episodes.
I learnt so much on what happened in the 90’s and thank you and my heart goes out to you and your Dad.
I live in the UK so with not living through the case at the time this podcast gave me so much knowledge.

Gripping but odd

Gripping and heartfelt podcast that gets to the heart of the issues surrounding the horrible events. A little too “American” at times but I could live with that. Also very odd and disconcerting going from a heart wrenching topic to Kim announcing “I have got to level 153 on this great mobile game”. I get you have ads but having Kim read them totally took me out of the seriousness of the subject. Very odd choice not to just play an ad read by an actor. Look past that and the content by and large is very good. Well done
