SQRL Media, a new podcast division from Glass Entertainment Group, kicks off with Confronting: O.J. Simpson, hosted by Kim Goldman, sister of Ron Goldman.
The debut podcast looks at the crimes, victims and circumstances surrounding the 1995 trial of O.J. Simpson, accused of murdering his ex-wife, Nicole Brown-Simpson, and her friend Ron Goldman.
Confronting: O.J. Simpson will release its first two episodes on June 12, in partnership with Wondery. Goldman co-hosts with Nancy Glass, who covered the trial as a journalist. Subsequent episodes will drop each week after that.
Glass is the executive producer and CEO of Glass Entertainment Group, and she also serves as CEO of SQRL, pronounced squirrel.
SQRL Media will function as a podcast publisher and a full-service audio production company, handling production and post-production audio services, complete with a full team of audio producers and engineers.
In the first season of Confronting, Goldman sits down with prosecutors, investigators, the jurors who voted not guilty and witnesses. Guests include prosecuting attorneys Marcia Clark and Christopher Darden, Simpson’s house guest Kato Kaelin, detective Tom Lange, and Dan Abrams, former Court TV reporter and television expert. The podcast series will explore the impact the trial had on each person.
SQRL will release an original slate of programming in the coming year.
“This project has been a personal journey for me and I hope will be for listeners who have either followed our story or had a personal experience relatable to this crime. I’m grateful to SQRL and Wondery for allowing me to share the other side of this story that has gripped America for 25 years in an organic, emotional and informative manner,” said host Goldman, in a statement.
For SQRL Media, Nancy Glass, Ben Fetterman and Andrea Gunning are executive producers.
