Believed

Senior Producer, Sound Designer

Michigan Radio, distributed by NPR

2018

Believed is an 8-part narrative and investigative podcast about the women who brought down Larry Nassar. It’s an inside look at how a team of women — a detective, a prosecutor, and an army of survivors — won justice in one of the largest serial sexual abuse cases in U.S. history. It’s also an unnerving exploration of how even well-meaning adults can fail to believe.

​Credits: Reported and hosted by Lindsey Smith and Kate Wells. Editors: Sarah Hulett and Alison MacAdam. Executive Producer: Jennifer Guerra. Senior Producer: Juliet Hinely. Associate Producer: Paulette Parker. Mix/Master: Bob Skon.
