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.

Required Listening

Was so impressed with the storytelling, the analysis of these horrific events, and with the strength of the victims. This podcast should be required listening for all police, school and sports administrators, parents- Anyone who is in a position to listen and find the truth when someone comes to them asking for help.
