8:10 am
now comes a podcast from kim goldman, ron goldman's sister, about the case and others like it today from the perspective of the victim's family. 28 years ago the brutal murders of nicole brown simpson and ron goldman launched the trial of the century and turned o.j. simpson from famous to infamous. >> if it doesn't fit, you must acquit. >> reporter: now ron goldman's sister and victim advocate releasing a new podcast, "the trial of the century with kim goldman." it will take an in-depth look at cases that rattle the world. speaking with "the hollywood reporter" kim and her father fred goldman provided an early glimpse into the series. according to kim, the podcast takes high-profile cases and talks to people directly impacted by mass media. kim says the series will examine private tragedy and the public eye and discuss the impact of being the subject of countless television shows, interviews and phone calls. and finally, how that all interferes with the ability to heal and recover and get justice, or not. the trial of the century will
8:11 am
introduce listeners to perspectives often overlooked in true crime narratives. fred goldman says there's a multitude of additional victims, family members, loved ones, friends, et cetera, that are affected by the crime and the victimization of someone. people seem to forget that everybody that's harmed has a family, has close people that are revictimized. kim describes how the narrative surrounding her brother's murder spiraled out of the family's control. it became so far removed from my brother and nicole and then the extensions of us that it became about the killer. simpson was found not guilty of murder but lost a civil case and owes the goldmans roughly $31 million. that number has increased by 10% a year. today that 30 million is roughly 90 million. but fred says he's never paid one single penny. how? kim says so all of his assets are protected by the homestead laws in florida, as well as his retirement funds and any of his pensions. everything was protected.
8:12 am
on that point i interviewed o.j. simpson several times after he moved to florida back in '99/2000 and on one occasion he confirmed to me that is exactly why he moved to florida. he told me the more money he puts into his house, the less the goldmans can get from him.
