NICK LEIGHTON is a two-time Emmy® Award-winning journalist (we're as surprised as anyone), originally from a small hippie commune in Northern California.
LEAH BONNEMA may or may not have actually been raised by wolves in a small town in Maine. Today, you can find her doing stand-up on stages and on televisions across the United States.
Emily Post has the perfect advice for almost every quotidian situation: How late is too late to send your cousin a wedding gift? How many times should one thank a party host? But what about scenarios a little less ordinary? What are you supposed to do, for example, when someone takes their socks off on an airplane? Were You Raised By Wolves?, hosted by comedian Leah Bonnema and Emmy Award–winning journalist Nick Leighton, is a Blue Book Of Social Usage for millennials, providing a useful, irreverent guide to not being the worst. The P’s and Q’s this week range from the very practical, like how to use wooden chopsticks and how to handle check-splitting, to more outlandish issues like secretly cleaning your hosts’ grimy home while they sleep or why it’s rude to ask someone what they do or where they went to school. Etiquette provides tools for people to become more aware of others and more empathetic. Bonnema and Leighton are about to have you looking like a very good and very thoughtful human in no time. —Morgan McNaught— The A.V. Club
I love that the hosts always get right to the point each episode. Don't get me wrong — I also love banter-heavy pods — but there is something so refreshing about this. Also, I have learned SO much about things I might never even thing about. Thank you!— Hannah
