Description

Media Circus takes an inside look at private tragedy in the public eye, and explores how the media got it right, got it wrong, and got in the way. In each episode, Victim Advocate and Author Kim Goldman gives us a fresh, behind-the-scenes look into high profile crimes you think you know, told by the victims and their families who were thrust into the spotlight in their most vulnerable moments. Media Circus connects you with the real people beyond the media coverage to share their stories -- in their own words, on their own terms.


Episode Date
The Murder of Bonny Lee Bakley
2479

It was May 4, 2001. Bonny Lee Bakley, wife of  Emmy-winning actor Robert Blake, was mysteriously gunned down a block away from Vitello's restaurant in Studio City, California. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

The media couldn’t get enough of yet another Hollywood murder case. But many were focused on what would become of Bonny and Robert’s 11-month-old daughter, Rose. That beautiful baby girl, who grew up somewhat hidden from the public, is now a 22-year-old young woman. She’s smart, insightful and she is very much ready to tell her story.

Sandy Hook Mom VS Alex Jones
3380

6-year-old Jesse Lewis was one of 20 children and six adults killed in Sandy Hook, Connecticut in the deadliest mass shooting in an elementary school in U.S. history… the fourth deadliest U.S. mass shooting ever. You'd think losing her youngest son would be enough grief and pain for one mom to bear, but Alex Jones and his site InfoWars continued to harass, mock and put Scarlett Lewis and her family in danger; until she said enough is enough. Hear her story of healing, resilience and justice for Jesse and the other victims in Sandy Hook.

GOOD CULT IS AVAILABLE NOW!
498

Good Cult is an investigative podcast about the dark corners of the New Age self-help movements and the American counterculture. In season one, host River Donaghey will explore his family's group therapy cult to unpack the strange history of the Human Potential Movement, and try to understand how a violent self-help seminar in the 1980s evolved into a global phenomenon, which would capture his own family decades later.

Surviving an Insurrection
3068

It was the morning of January 6, 2021. Washington DC had been eerily quiet for several months, but this day felt different. Thousands of protesters, representing nearly every state in the nation, began to swarm the United States Capitol building as Congress was set to certify the 2020 presidential election results. Officer Harry Dunn was assigned to the east side of the Capitol, facing the Supreme Court and the Library of Congress.

What happened next would leave several dead, 140 plus injured, and lead to over 700 arrests, creating serious mental health trauma among law enforcement officers, and dividing a fractured nation even further apart.

Cleveland's House of Horrors
2415

In 2013, the discovery of Cleveland’s ‘house of horrors’ dominated the headlines. Three women held captive in a home – neighbors completely unaware of the terror that was happening behind closed doors of the house on Seymour Avenue. Gina DeJesus was the youngest of the three, abducted from a busy street while walking home from school – nine years before.

The Beating of Rodney King
1901

March 3rd 1991: George Holliday and his wife were awoken by sirens and a helicopter flying low over his apartment complex. The plumber and amateur videographer reached for his brand new Sony Camcorder, went out to the balcony and hit record. What he didn’t realize was he was about to capture what was arguably the first viral video of our time. About 90 feet away, four white LAPD officers were beating a black man named Rodney King, stopped after a high-speed pursuit. 

At home, his 7 year old daughter Lora saw the brutal beating on television – with no clue it was her own father. Now 38 years old, Kim talks with Lora King about her childhood experience and the work she'd doing in her father's name.

John Ramsey's Plea to Catch JonBenet's Killer
3008

It was the day after Christmas 1996 in Boulder, Colorado. John and Patsy Ramsey woke early to get ready for a family trip to Michigan. John’s children from a previous marriage were en route to meet them. Their two youngest children were upstairs snuggled in their beds – or so they believed. 

John and Patsy Ramsey faced the unthinkable. But in the following days, and for the next 25 years, they’d also face scrutiny, accusations and death threats. And they’d be tried over and over again in the court of public opinion.

Overcoming Jeffrey Epstein with Kiki Doe
2580

Kiki Doe was living on her own in Manhattan in 2004 when a stranger approached her at the coffee shop where she worked with an interesting proposition. But what Kiki didn’t realize is that this young woman who would become a friend, was actually part of a sophisticated network that would ultimately uncover child prostitution, sex trafficking and the sexual assault of countless young victims, all who’ve suffered at the hands of Jeffrey Epstein and his co-conspirator, Ghislaine Maxwell.
