The Water 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 Water Issue. 

The pandemic has taken a lot from all of us but it’s also forced us to look at our routines and introduce new habits to our lives. Enter stage left, sea swimming! We’ve let our inner water babies, mermaids and mermen out and we are throwing ourselves into the chilly depths like no one's business. An avid swimmer, Sonya tells us what it gives her and sea newbie Brendan shares his (merman) tales too. Water, water everywhere, so let’s all have a...think!

Before you lash on your togs, we need your help. Lennon Courtney Left Alone is always free to listen to, but if you want to show us your appreciation, pay us a digital tip by leaving a positive comment and five stars on iTunes or wherever you listen. It takes seconds and splish, splash, splosh - you’ve made our day. All you have to do is  click here and it will bring you straight to our page where you can sing our praises ; ).

Until next Thursday, stay safe, don’t panic and wear a mask.

Sonya and Brendan.
