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.

Very good storytelling

I thought I new about the case but I had no idea. Very well done. Thank you for giving the victims a voice.

Deeply touching

Very well done podcast that tells the story succinctly yet tear-jerkingy. Can’t believe how long it took to be heard and believed in our society and makes me wonder what other stories and injustices are yet untold. My heart goes out to everyone affected and I do hope we can prevent similar cases going forward.

I cannot express how much this has helped me, especially Kyle Stephen’s story. This podcast was amazingly done describing the effects of sexual assault and the story of the girls that were abused by Larry Nassar.
