Jeff's reputation as a bully was something of a legend in the coastal town where he grew up.  Eight years later, and with a chance to start over again, Jeff knows why he bullied -- but he also knows why it might still work for him. Can someone grow out of bullying? And what would it take for bullying to seem less useful in the first place? In "Portrait Of The Bully As A Young Man," independent radio producer Jones Franzel takes on these messy life questions to get an honest and unflinching look at what it means to be a bully. This piece is presented by Blunt Youth Radio's Incarcerated Youth Speak Out Project.
