How did Larry Nassar, an Olympic gymnastics doctor, get away with abusing hundreds of women and girls for two decades? Believed is an inside look at how a team of women won a conviction in one of the largest serial sexual abuse cases in U.S. history. It's a story of survivors finding their power in a cultural moment when people are coming to understand how important that is. It's also an unnerving exploration of how even well-meaning adults can fail to believe.

One of the best series I’ve listened to

As a MSU student who was living and working on campus during this scandal, I was deeply moved by the in-depth and sensitive reporting done by this team. This is a must-listen podcast. It shows us how our society treats survivors and highlights the work that still needs to be done.

Heartbreaking

This podcast is heartbreaking and completely unbelievable that these girls, teens and women weren’t believed.

Disturbing yet Terrific

Definitely not a podcast that you can play anywhere near children, yet the first thing it made me do was to talk with my children. Incredibly well done and such a service to others.
