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.

Five stars to all involved in researching and presenting this nightmare story and recognition of the courage of all those who spoke out to bring the truth to light.
One of the best limited series podcasts I’ve ever listened to and also probably the best reported story on sexual assault in this era in which they are so painfully rife, human, empathetic, and not indulgent in theatrics or suspense - its the lives of the victims, not the mystique of the offender that drives the story forward and that makes following it through all the more satisfying
Monster story well told.
The reporting in this podcast is superb. Respectful and informative. Such heartbreaking disgusting stories . Heart goes out to all the survivors
