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.

Everyone needs to listen

As hard as this podcast was to listen to I am appreciative that these stories were told.

Wow!

Breath taking! A well told story that I didn’t realize I knew so little of. I wished I could hug them all! Thank you for this.

Incredible

Thank you, for delving into this terrible event and incredibly difficult topic with such tact and well-rounded reporting. It’s riveting, emotional and difficult to hear sometimes, but so worth it for the truth to be told. Beautiful. And such a triumph when victims in this scenario are so often not believed.
