The Mother 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 Mother Issue. 

The child/mother dynamic can be a tricky one to navigate sometimes but if you’re lucky, your mother will be your biggest supporter and source of great comfort throughout your life. 

We talk about the trap some mothers fall into of doing it all and that emotional labour needs to be evenly carried by both parents. Brendan talks about his beloved mam and how well they get on but may think twice about working together in the future. Sonya shares her experience of motherhood and talks about how she is the product of brilliant parenting from her firebrand mum. We also talk about tattoos and ear piercing for some reason.

Now, here comes the science part...we know you hear it all the time but it really helps the podcast grow when people leave reviews and give us a five star rating on iTunes or wherever you listen. It takes seconds. All you have to do is  click here and it will bring you straight to our page where you can sing our praises ; ). All new comments with five stars left on iTunes will be entered into a draw from our #LeftAloneBookClub. Winners will be announced on our Instagram.

Until next Thursday, stay safe and wear a mask.

Sonya and Brendan.
