Victims’ rights advocate Kim Goldman joins John O’Leary on the Live Inspired Podcast to share the transformative power of turning personal losses into impactful support for others.

Kim Goldman is a victims’ rights advocate, championing justice and remembrance for victims.

After her brother Ron Goldman was murdered alongside friend Nicole Brown on June 12, 1994, Kim suddenly found herself thrust into the media spotlight while vulnerably trying to grieve.

Today, less than a week after the death of one the key players within this story, I revisit my conversation with Kim.

Join us as we reflect on the part of her life that was changed permanently and her feelings on speaking with prosecutors, investigators, and witnesses who never got to speak and jurors who voted not guilty for her podcast series Confronting: O.J. Simpson. Plus, she’ll share how she continues to honor her brother by supporting victims and families that face similar tragedies.

My friends, this episode reminds us of the non-linear journey of grief and yet, the transformative power of turning personal losses into impactful support for others.
