Twenty-five years after the murder of her older brother Ron Goldman, Kim Goldman is launching a new podcast called “Confronting: O.J. Simpson”.
Goldman was stabbed to death along with Nicole Brown Simpson on June 12, 1994 when he arrived at her home to return a pair of glasses she had left at the restaurant where he worked. Brown Simpson’s ex-husband O.J. Simpson was put on trial and was eventually acquitted of the double murder.
On Wednesday, the 25th anniversary of the killings, Kim announced she is launching a 10-episode podcast series on the murders. The “Confronting” podcast includes interviews with family, friends and key figures in the case, including prosecutor Marcia Clark, Simpson houseguest Kato Kaelin and LAPD detective Tom Lange, among others.
In an interview on “Good Morning America” with her father Fred Goldman, Kim says the podcast will allow her to ask questions that have been haunting her for 25 years.
“For all these years, it’s been a little frustrating that there’s been so much about this case… television series, fictional approaches, that I thought it was important to go right to the source,” she says.
Goldman says she spoke to to jurors in the Simpson trial who confirmed the jury deliberation was a “cover-up.”
“They corroborated what my dad and I always thought – which was that they didn’t do their job,” she explains. “They pulled testimony just to cover up that they always knew what their answer was when they went into that jury room and they wasted our time for three-and-a-half hours.”
Adds her father: “The defense team was a group of men whose single goal was to get their client off.”
The Goldmans say they don’t speak O.J. Simpson’s name in their house.
“He is a murderer. I don’t want to get my mouth dirty with his name,” Fred Goldman says. “He doesn’t have the courage, the moral backbone to admit what he did. He’s a fraud.”
