Bullying isn’t a new story, but lately, it is all over the news. And while young people are often the targets and the actors in bullying, we rarely get to hear their perspectives in the media.

Bullied: Teen Stories from Generation PRX is changing that. This hour-long special produced in collaboration with WNPR includes stories from teens with first-hand insight on bullying. From being called "Osama" in a Boston classroom, to looking at whether bullying prevention programs really work in Anchorage, youth producers from around the globe help show us what we don’t we understand – but need to – about bullying. Join teen hosts Council Brandon and Peython Echelson-Russell for an hour of thought-provoking stories, interviews and teen perspectives on bullying.

Bullied: Teen Stories from Generation PRX includes contributions from Blunt Youth Radio Project, ZUMIX Radio, Alaska Teen Media Institute, Hear in the City, Middletown Youth Radio Project and LatitudeNews.com.  It is supported by a grant from the Motorola Mobility Foundation. The show was produced by WNPR, Connecticut Public Radio and presented by PRX, the Public Radio Exchange. Learn more at generation.prx.org/bullied
