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.

Presenting Embedded: Capital Gazette
35:25We see the families crying on TV. We hear how the survivors escaped. We see victims honored at candlelight vigils after the latest mass shooting at a school, office, concert or church. But we eventually stop paying attention. We, the ones who are safe, move on. What if we didn't? What could we learn if we stayed awhile? We bring you Episode 1 of a new series from NPR's Embedded podcast, which follows the survivors of the 2018 shooting at the Capital Gazette newspaper in Annapolis, Maryland.
