The Bullying Issue

THE BULLYING ISSUE


Welcome to series 3 of Lennon Courtney Left Alone, a podcast about conversations we have when we’re left alone.


This week it’s The Bullying Issue. 


We often think of bullying in relation to younger people and schoolyard taunts but it can also take place in adult environments too. We’re going to talk about it all this week.


Before we get started though, as always, we would really love it if you left us a 5 star review and comment on iTunes or wherever you listen. All you have to do is  click here and it will bring you straight to our page. Our podcast is always free to listen to so consider leaving five stars like a digital tip to us.


Until next Thursday, continue to stay safe!


Sonya and Brendan.
