Bullying isn't a new story, but lately, it's all over the news.

And while young people are often the targets and the offenders in bullying, they rarely get the opportunity to tell their own stories. In Bullied: Teen Stories from Generation PRX, stories from victims, teachers, and even the bullies themselves provide a frank, provocative window into the range and reality of bullying culture.

Bullied was supported by a grant from Motorola Mobility Foundation. It's produced by Connecticut Public Radio and presented by the Public Radio Exchange.
