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.

My therapist recommended this podcast to me. While it was difficult to try to keep my PTSD in check, I found it so important to listen to every word. Thank you to everyone who made this happen. Thank you to those who were strough enough to speak up. I wasn't in my situation and I regret it so much.

Christa Beery Thank you so much for your comment. I'm sorry you had to go through such an awful experience. I wanted to say that I am sure you did all you could in your situation, and you did it to survive it. It is not at all easy to speak up sometimes.

Thank you so much for this. I was not believed by so many people when I was date raped.. Or blamed is probably the better word. When my daughter was raped by her father I believed and most of the family believed but she was so young that her voice was not believed by DHS or the police.

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.
