Description

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.

about 1/2 way through gaslighting episode. The episode drew me in with the idea I would get to hear Larry speak... but the audio was edited so severely that I wasn't given the opportunity to learn. The journalist spoke over all of it with her opinion. As a fellow Me Too, I was intrigued to hear what his warped mind had to say. I was also sexually abused from toddlerhood to teenager in an extreme way. I wanted to hear how these deviants think. Let the nutcase speak! You already have your platform.

Evidence is all that matters in these cases. Belief is subjective and means nothing in uncovering the truth. The people at npr should be intelligent enough to understand this simple concept. Yet they feign ignorance in order to appeal to emotional women and young people whos brains are not fully developed. npr is doing a grave disservice to all victims of assault and sexual violence by using such infantile terminology.

Dan Kaiser Testimony is evidence, genius. That’s why it’s called ‘giving evidence’ lol

Dan Kaiser if you actually listened to the episodes, you would connect the dots that the podcast is called Believed because the victims were finally believed after a long time of people dismissing them or thinking they were liars. So if anything, the title does fit and is not doing anyone a disservice. Imagine the relief of finally being heard after being kept silent for so long.
