ABOUT THIS EPISODE
The trial against OJ Simpson was a flashpoint in modern American history, touching on themes of celebrity, racial tension, justice and privilege. Often forgotten in these proceedings were the victims: Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman, the latter a 25-year-old Jewish young man originally from Chicago. Now, 25 years later, his sister Kim opens up about her childhood with Ron; her life during and after that heart-wrenching period; the 10-part podcast series, Confronting O.J. Simpson, she recently released about these experiences; and her decades of victims' advocacy since.
