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.

Believe girls

The story was riveting, deeply disturbing at the most elemental levels, and fascinating. It was also inspiring. For every parent and advocate for truth, integrity, and young women it’s a must-listen. You will be broken and you will rise.

To the creators, thank you for telling this story. It was difficult to listen to so I cannot imagine how difficult it must’ve been to make the series. You have done something very important.

To the survivors, I am grateful to you for telling your stories. (And fully respect those who did not come forward, too.) You are saving lives. To the adults who failed but learned to listen, you humble us and your speaking up helps us learn. May we all be better.

To all involved, you are teaching all of us to believe girls. Thank you.

This podcast tells this story very well

I watched the HBO show about this. After listening to this podcast I realize there was a lot more to the story then what was shown on HBO. Great job.
