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.

Customer Reviews


So glad you are telling this story. So important and necessary. Thank you

Important story

An important story and quality investigative journalism. Thank you for curating this. We need to learn about the lives and people behind the headlines.

Problem of Tone

This is heartbreaking and important and I commend the producers and reporters for their thoughtful work. However, the two reporters/narrators sound like they are smiling when they are speaking, which is very disconcerting and inadvertently disrespectful to the victims and the subject matter. Also, the episodes are very short which is also disconcerting - the listener is dropped into and out of the story too abruptly.
