The Opportunity Issue


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

This week it’s The Opportunity Issue. This week we talk about opportunity as a place and a privilege and how we all need to acknowledge our own privilege blindness.

BUT WAIT! Before you listen to this week’s issue, please take this opportunity to show us your support. Simply leave a short positive review and give us five stars at this link where you can tell us how we’re your favourite podcast. It’s a simple way you can help the podcast grow - we can’t do it without you.

And while you’re here, let us take this opportunity to thank you for listening! 

Until next Thursday...

Sonya and Brendan.
