My new favorite podcast!

Love the hosts entertaining yet informative take on etiquette questions submitted by listeners. When so much of the world seems to relish people behaving badly, we can at least make the choice to make it a nicer place to be by being polite!

My Favorite Podcast!!!

I came upon this podcast as I was looking for some entertaining podcasts while my husband and I were on a long road trip. We both absolutely love listening to the advice and the hosts. This podcast informs and entertains at the same time. Often there are some laughs out loud!!! I wish I could meet and have lunch with Nick and Leah as they are just endearing! They really try to make the world a better place by simply promoting good manners. You need to listen to this podcast to understand how we can all make kindness and consideration an easy priority. I highly recommend this podcast to everyone!!

So upbeat and fun

This is the show I listen to when I need reminding the humans can be civilized, polite, kind, upbeat and delightful. Nick and Leah have wonderful, doable solutions to the confounding things we confront in our relationships with others. I always feel better about others when I listen. A dose of humor and a big swig of “let’s be grown ups” in every episode.

Keep up the Great Work!

Nick and Leah give great advice for everyday situations and some not so common situations, but I love it all! They are great at what they do and enjoy listening every week.

Just FUN and relaxing

No politics, no profanity, just fun. Great interaction between host and hostess. They respond to listeners emails asking for help on etiquette and “good manners” in everyday situations. It’s relaxing and funny

Informative and Entertaining

I love this show! It is hard for me to find a podcast I can get into. Once I find one though I’m usually hooked, and this is no exception. It is the perfect blend of informative and entertaining. Leah and Nick are funny and delightful and the episodes are to the point. I appreciate the editing and the time/research that goes into scripting each one. Keep up the good work Leah and Nick!

Practical advice, delivered with humor

I’ve learned a lot about etiquette by listening to this Podcast. Nick and Leah have great chemistry. This Podcast is a good reminder to be kind and considerate.

I absolutely love this podcast! It's my favourite one right now. I find Nick and Leah so fun to listen to and I've actually learned a lot. I mostly listen for the entertainment though as the hosts are so quick witted and fun!

Who knew etiquette could be fun?

I love this dishy (but ever-so-polite) chat about manners in contemporary culture! Always enlightening even when you, of course, know which fork to use. The humorous commentary adds engaging context and I am addicted!

Saving Society One Show at a Time

If only we all could be kind and polite in the ways Nick and Leah suggest. I love their modern take on age old social dilemmas. The continually impress with their down to earth and smart answers. Can’t wait for every episode!

My weekly kindness reminder

I am a grumpy impatient person, that being said I have learned so much from Nick and Leah that I am more polite and tolerant of stupid people. WYRBW is my weekly dose of good manners and being civil. The podcast has a weekly structure with new topics each week on the customs and practices of good etiquette. It is a fun light hearted podcast which I have enjoyed each week.

my new favorite podcast

Nick and Leah are delightful! Their advice is witty, thoughtful and so practical. I feel myself becoming more gracious with each listen, and I usually laugh out loud at least once during each episode.

Lots of fun

A delightful podcast that I look forward to each week. I find the entertainment factor equally as important as their insightful tips.

A lovely reminder that people kind (and should!) be thoughtful

I don’t often leave reviews even for podcasts I love — which, reflecting now, is probably poor etiquette. (This week, I’d be more repent than vent!) In a world where everyone is very busy and sometimes it seems as if no one has manners, it’s refreshing to listen to Leah and Nick. This is the podcast equivalent of a stranger holding open a door for you — it just brightens your day!

Such a fun, fresh, and helpful podcast

Nick and Leah are so down to earth and really make me believe in humanity lol! They are very entertaining and wise. I love the scenarios they go through on each episode. I always learn something new!

I love this show

I love to listen to this show and laugh along to the jokes. The community you have created with your show means a lot to me. On of my favorite parts of the show are cordials of kindness and, questions from the wilderness. -Warmly A fellow wolf.

Antidote for a rude word

Oh my goodness! Where to begin with the praises I want to heap upon the fabulous hosts of this binge-worthy podcast. First off: this is fun, funny, addictive, educational, smart, and sassy. This is the rain in my desert. The oxygen in my cultural outer space. This is seriously soul-reviving funniness, and also legitimately helpful. Boom! With wit, empathy and humor this show has helped me to recalibrate my own manners, and has redeemed me in my displeasure with human behavior. People can be FSR (for sure rude!) and now I don’t feel quite so alone in my shock and horror. Thank you Nick and Leah for helping us all to be better people, and for letting us share a collective laugh (or groan) at all of the crazy rudeness in the world. I believe that, in addition to feeling vindicated for all the nonsense I have put up with over the years, I now have better boundaries and more confidence after binging this podcast. I hope to never be the subject of one of your letter-writers’ rants! This podcast is one of my favorites. It’s definitely in my top 5. Wonderful find. Love it!


Finally!!! This podcast feels like an invite to an exclusive tea party, but gives a fresh perspective on manners and being kind and considerate. With a little history peppered in these cheeky hosts really deliver entertainment. Can’t recommend it enough.

So Engaging

This show is a bit problematically addictive for me, and the most engaging podcast I've ever listened to. On the plus side, I'm getting a lot done around the house because I keep needing "just one more" episode, and it's an ideal pairing with deep cleaning. I've learned a lot (love the deep dives!), gotten a lot of validation, and just related so much on a human level. It's kept my spirits high during a very busy and somewhat stressful time. Safety Warning: Do not consume any liquid during episode 32. You will have sudden bursts of wild laughter and it may happen as you're swallowing and cause choking.

Fun, Funny, and Informative

Were You Raised by Wolves is the podcast that solves my problem of not wanting to get out of bed on Monday morning. Nick and Leah have given me thoughtful answers to my own questions, and answer questions I never knew I needed answers to! They make etiquette approachable, create a safe place to vent, and provide a cultural education about places/times I am less familiar with. So grateful to this podcast for being a bright spot to every week.

Best Show In History!!!!!😁

Hi Nick and Leah! Just wanted to say, I love love this podcast, if I had to choose the best podcast in history, I would definitely choose Were You Raised by Wolves! It is funny and influential, and just flat out amazing! Thank you so much for teaching me educate! Blessed & Overjoyed Listener, Summer

Funny & Informative!

If you love watching people at the airport, you will love this podcast. The hosts are fun and informative, and I enjoy listening to all the sticky situations people get into and how they might politely (and directly) get themselves out. This is a new favorite for me - I highly recommend!

This show is a breath of fresh air and a much needed break from depressing and stressful current events and politics. I don't think there's anything else that's a mix of entertainment, information, and fun. Thanks, Nick and Leah, for all you do!!

Helpful & Funny

My 9-year-old daughter and I have such a good time listening to this podcast when we are in the car together (and sometimes at home, while we eat dinner). Nick and Leah truly make manners and having empathy for others a fun and funny learning experience! Thank you!

Scratches an itch I didn’t know I had

This show is the perfect combination of humor, information, and secondhand voyeurism (who doesn’t love hearing about other peoples’ social drama?). I love it. I didn’t think I’d love a show about manners and etiquette, but it’s honestly so interesting and entertaining that I am truly addicted. I wish I could attend a dinner party with Nick and Leah!

I love this podcast! I love hearing about other peoples etiquette problems and relating them to my experiences. I often find myself saying "I knew Lisa and Chad were wrong!" BUT my favorite part of the show is hearing the funny banter of what you should definitely not say. I recently found the podcast on Spotify and have been benge listening at work.

A little levity for our tumultous times

I love this podcast! Nick and Lea have brought humor, comfort and fun pertinent info during the often mundane but sometimes sad days of the pandemic and recent current events. I started listening a few weeks ago and have enjoyed many of their past episodes as well as their current ones. Their amusing and insightful observations are a great way sooth my sometimes reeling mind and remind me of the fun and fabulousness of everyday life challenges. They also remind me that I am not crazy when I often think "What is wrong with that person?!?!?!?" Thank you Nick and Leah. You two are GEMS! So thank you the laughs and for helping us all be a little kinder and more polite. You two are both gems! Most sincerely, Rose

Short and sweet

I learn more fun facts on this pod than I do on some of my other ‘fun facts’ pods.

Ear candy that’s good for you

I’m so glad I stumbled upon this show; I absolutely love it - the hosts, their funny banter, and their advice. It’s the perfect podcast for someone who frequently finds themselves thinking “I can’t believe the person in front of me is asking/doing/behaving like that. What’s my next move that isn’t equally off putting?”

Yes I was.

Raised by wolves, that is. Absolutely love this show. So funny and helpful at the same time. I’m delighted every Monday!

Should be required listening…

…as a lot of people would benefit from etiquette lessons. Fun and entertaining personalities.

Informative And Uplifting

Many people who know me describe me as “proper,” but despite being thoroughly taught manners as a child, I am learning a few new things from this delightful podcast. Nick and Leah are both insightful and funny. Looking forward to hearing more from this team.

Shoutout to Leah & Nick

This show is the highlight of my Mondays, such a great way to start the week. I love the banter between the hosts and the wealth of everyday, practical etiquette that I learn. This is the first podcast for which I became a Patreon sponsor.

Love this podcast!

Entertaining and fun.

So informative! So funny!

These two are an absolute delight. I listen to new episodes as soon as they become available, and the banter never fails to brighten my day. This podcast balances out all the angst in our current world.

Absolutely lovely.

I’d write you a handwritten review if I could! But in all seriousness, oh thank goodness—these are my people. Nick and Leah are a delight. The show is amusing and informative. You’ll learn something and you’ll laugh.


Just found this and it is just great, thanks for making me laugh but also, helping me answer some of the questions I also have!

Were You Raised by Wolves

A delightful mix of fun, information, humor, and grace. This podcast is TOTALLY binge-worthy. Never a dull moment. Do yourself a favor and subscribe.

If only everyone would listen to this podcast…

…then our world could be a kinder, saner, more joyful place! I have recommended this gem to family and friends. The hosts are delightful and have such a clear- eyed way of analyzing life’s small ( and not so small) dilemmas, and coming to a resolution that takes everyone’s feelings and dignity into consideration. They make it all seem easy! Kinda like Ginger dancing backwards in heels. Bravo and thanks!

So fun and so much to learn!

This is such a fun podcast to listen to. I love hearing what Nick and Leah have to say about all sorts of situations that listeners ask about. In order for me to really like a podcast, it has to have great back-and-forth and some humor - which this one definitely does! Definitely one of my favorite podcasts!

Informative and Entertaining!

Worried that someone is wondering if you “were raised by wolves”? Hosts Nick and Leah help us to navigate everyday situations that are filled with possible faux pas. This is not the 1950’s but manners are manners! Today it seems people with manners are far and few between. This show is a must! Nick and Leah are energetic, knowledgeable, and informative hosts. Their banter keeps the show upbeat and fun.

My favorite podcast

This show is a true delight. I find myself cheering at Nick’s impeccably good manners, watching my mood elevate via Leah’s effervescent optimism and marveling at both hosts’ unique and incredibly helpful solutions to listeners’ difficult conundrums. Add this show to your subscription list, stat. Your new best friends are here to guide you through the nebulous paths of life’s sticky and unavoidable social interactions.

Unending topics

Wow, the questions that come up - behavior is an interesting beast. Listen to this podcast to learn - and to laugh. Warm and wonderful hosts.

Truly delightful!

Honestly the most underrated show in the past 5 years. Tell your friends, tell your fam, tell the bodega owner, tell the random person on the street that you are holding the door open for — this show is for everyone!

Whimsical! Delightful! Laugh out loud!

I love Nick and Leah! Their rapport is effortless, playful and hilarious! Listeners will be transported through a magical world of diverting trivia, shocking social crimes and tiny partisan cake forks! I’m in love 😍

Fun & educational!

If you like etiquette, humor, and kindness, this is the podcast for you!


Sweet hosts. Entertaining, engaging & educational 🤓👍👍

Hi I love this

Hi! Me and my mom found this podcast and absolutely love it! I also have a question: There’s some one in my class who ALWAYS is counting VERY LOUDLY during a test. Is there a kind way to address this? Thanks!

So fun and brilliant!

Nick and Lea give great advice. They make me smile on a dreary day or laugh out loud any day! Not to be missed!

My Favorite Show!

I love this show so much!

Prepare to cackle with glee

This show is such a delight and a bright spot in my week! Leah and Nick are so personable, witty, and kind (with just the right amount of snark) and their advice is ever so gratifying. Thank you thank you thank you for what you do!

I am in love with Nick and Leah!

This show is SO delightful. I just marathoned all the episodes and CANNOT WAIT for the next one. More, please!! (I'll write you a hand-written thank you note!) Truly a great show!!

Just a delight!

I don’t even remember how I came across this show, but it is a delight in my weekly schedule! I also look forward to the playful banter and wit and I always leave with lots to ponder. I love that it is so lighthearted - a great palate cleanser to the normal news and true crime podcasts I listen to. Well done, Nick and Leah!

This show is the best!

I LOVE this podcast so much! I love listening to Nick and Leah talk about the horrific etiquette crimes committed around the world. They always manage to make me laugh. Me and my mom listen to this podcast while we cook and I enjoy it so much.

Absolutely Love This Podcast!!!!

I stumbled on to this podcast by accident and absolutley love it!!! Nick and Leah are so funny and I've found myself saying "so rude"! I've learned so much and never thought I would enjoy a show on etiquette but I can not emphasize how much I love this show. I am almost through all the back episodes and don't know what I am going to listen to once I'm caught up! If you're on the fence definitely give this a listen!

Adorable and lovely!

Thank you for the amazing tips and comedy! You two are so sweet and funny, and just so comforting to listen to! Thank you😀😀😀

Amazing podcast

Thank you, you two help make life a little easier and lighter 😍

A Breath of Fresh Air!

Nick and Leah are so lovely to listen to in this crazy world! Anytime I can learn something AND laugh, I am in! Not only do they dispense excellent advice (and amuse-bouche), but if you ask a question, Nick replies promptly and kindly! They have raised the bar for my own behavior which is really they only thing I can control. Keep up the great work!

So helpful and so much fun!

Nick and Leah are great at balancing ranting with good spirits. They get our frustrations about how rude people can be, but they also share solutions and do so without increasing negativity. They make me aspire to be more positive and I couldn’t be more grateful for this podcast.

Cakes, Caviar, Christmas Tips

Advice so random, kind and funny you will love this show. Leah and Nick are bright stars in my week. I love the gentleness and eloquence of their replies to listener questions. Every minute brings a lightness to your day - some favorites are deep dives into etiquette topics (how to eat caviar, pot champagne and tip your waste service deliverer - I’m with team Leah and run out at 6 am in my pj’s but Nick had a more dignified suggestion). Dive in and vent, lament and perhaps repent along with these two - you will love their wit and warmth.

The podcast we need right now!

This is my new favorite show. It hits the double whammy of being entertaining while also improving society. I had lost hope that manners matter anymore, but Nick and Leigh are keeing my hope alive. I always learn something new in each episode, especially while listening in LA traffic. Thank you for this.


This podcast has helped me so much with my social skills and finding ways to be polite while maintaining my boundaries. I wish someone had taught me these things growing up. Thank you deeply for that.

A New Favorite!

I look forward to the new episodes while also listening to older shows from before I discovered Nick and Leah. Their humorous banter - whether they are in complete agreement or have politely opposing views - is always entertaining. They are helping to further the causes of good manners and thoughtfulness and that is a worthy endeavor. That they make me laugh while doing it is a bonus!

Everything I never knew I always needed

Nick and Leah are everything I never knew I always needed. In a podcast world where true crime reigns and long format interviews lurk like mafia in the night, it’s refreshing to find a show that just wants to “make it better, when we have to live together”. I learn a lot about good manners from this show and have my gripes with humanity validated. I listen to a lot of podcasts and this is the first show I have ever been compelled to join a patreon for. ♥️♥️♥️

So enjoyable and educational

I love listening to this podcast for Nick’s charm and Leah’s joy. As a Latina, I sometimes don’t know all the social expectations so I like seeing things from a different cultural perspective, although I also think it’d be hilarious to bring a few guests of color on the podcast and see if they agree with some social “norms” that may or may not be universally agreed upon. If this were a dinner plate, I’d put my silverware in the position asking for the suggestion book and add that nugget. (Smile)

Incredibly Creative

I just became a Patreon as this podcast is delightfully creative. it is professionally put together and moves along at a clip that does not waste the listener’s time. No drinking, bad microphones, swearing or meaningless giggling or pauses. Love it!!!

Great Podcast!

I just started listening to “Were you raised by wolves?” and I’m so glad I did. Nick and Leigh talk through all of things you might wonder to to yourself and give such helpful advice.

I love it

I am an 8 year old and I love to hear about etiquette and this is awesome 👍🏻❤️

Binge listen

Thanks to holiday crafting (and the quality of this podcast), I have binged nearly every episode in a ridiculously short period of time. I don’t know what I will do if I run out of episodes before I run out of crafting! I find the show incredibly cathartic in exactly the way that internet round-ups of people behaving badly AREN’T, and I identify so hard with Leah’s anxiety and overthinking (and curly hair!) that the whole thing is just very validating. Thank you for sharing this show with the world!

Excellent podcast, very interactive and engaging. I was definitely raised by wolves but now have some guidance as to how to pretend otherwise.

Exactly What Is Needed

Blessings to you both & all the people involved in the podcast. So very important to remind the older generations & also teach the younger ones the importance of just being a good human. Social graces are the cornerstone of community.🙏❤️


I could listen to Nick and Leah all day!

A great palate cleanser

This podcast is delightful! To the point, light-hearted, witty and kind. I love the episodes when they have a rant or repentance for the week. Hilarious!

Informative, relatable, and entertaining!

It isn’t often that my teen son and I can find common ground on interests… but now we have this podcast! Traditional scenarios like table manners and party etiquette are addressed as well as contemporary topics like text messaging and gifting. Each episode is peppered with fun side features of “amuse-bouche”, “vent or repent”, “from the wilderness” (I howl with Leah), etc… check it out!

Delightful AND informative!

These two are a joy to listen to. I appreciate how they dive right into the topic rather than subject the audience to pointless preambles. Great format! I love learning manners from Leah and Nick ☺️

Hilarious Show

It was shown to me by a friend and I can’t stop. I love listening while I sleep. Highly recommend

Best podcast oh how my be a better person

I came across this podcast randomly and i am so glad that i did. It teaches you how to have manners and how to react nicely in different situations. And the hosts are so good together! Highly recommend 💕

New favorite podcast!

I am obsessed with this podcast. The advice is always wonderful but the best part is gearing Nick and Leah’s reactions to all of the rudeness going down in the world. It’s a gem!

True crime…etiquette crime that is!

Just an absolutely delightful show that has restored my faith in humanity. If you think you are the last human dedicated to never inconveniencing others, not overstepping boundaries and always sending thank you notes…take heart! There are others like you, and two of them host this charming podcast!

The bright light we all need right now!

I can’t tell you how much joy this show brings me. It truly has it all: it’s hilarious, Nick and Leah have a wonderful rapport and it’s the perfect outlet for for outrage at life’s little (and large) indignities. I really have learned so much — from obscure etiquette facts to how to handle nuanced social situations. And when you write in a question, Nick takes the time to answer! Sometimes he even asks follow up questions and does research! What really makes the show work, though, is the Nick and Leah’s abundant kindness and empathy — it’s clear in the way they treat each other and their listeners. They really are going to make the world a kinder place! If I could, I would make this show a mandatory part of the school curriculum. Thank you, Nick

Best entertainment

You two are SO good together and the questions are educational, fun and refreshing! I look forward to every episode. My past fav was Stuff You Should Know and We’re You Raised By Wolves is right up there on top with them now! Carry on you rascals for propriety! I’ll be listening. OH, and thank you for the fruitcake recipe.🤗

Candlewicks and Peking Duck

Please do yourself a favor and listen to this extraordinarily fun and informative Podcast. I alternate between slapping my hand and patting my head and all the while I’m learning and laughing.

My Good-Mood Show

This podcast always puts me in a good mood! The hosts are hilarious and thoughtful.

Funny, interesting and informative - I love this podcast!

Have you ever wondered…

My favorite questions begin with the words “Would it be rude if…” Inevitably, if you have to ask the question, the answer is yes! 😉 Nick and Leah give such great takes on the many etiquette questions that come their way. I enjoy that they sometimes have different responses to the situations. They also remind me to be more generous with my responses to people (yes, THE ANNOYING people). Thanks for putting together one of my favorite podcasts.

Were You Raised by Wolves ( I hope not!)

I am I in love with this podcast! I have learned some new things and been validated on so many more! The hosts are absolutely delightful! I’ve been binge listening and am almost caught up to real time! I think EVERYONE needs to listen to this, it can make us all more considerate and kind!!!

Great show!

But Leah, and everyone else, should tip 20% for take out.

Wonderful advice

The hosts are clever, thoughtful and full of useful information. Making the world a better place, one thank-you letter at a time.


I didn’t realize a podcast about etiquette could be inclusive and fun but this one is. It also contains a perfect amount of gentle snark. It’s like this a nice brunch with booze, if that makes any sense at all.

Love this show!!!!!

Absolutely love this show and find your voices so calming. Keep it up!!

Love this show!

I rally love this show! I look forward to listening every Monday to Nick and Leah providing quality information that is fun and thoughtful.

Listen and share

And together, we’ll make the world a better place

Is there etiquette in writing a review?

This show my latest obsession. I love the hosts so much - a fun show to listen to while I’m walking my dogs! I just shared the show with my sister so we can talk about it. Keep up the great work!

Helpful and entertaining

No matter how polite or polished your manners may be, there is truly something for everyone! A great podcast for a family road trip or a walk in the neighborhood. Enjoyable!

Love this podcast!

I look forward to every new episode! I have learned some fun facts and great tips on how to act in a variety of situations. Nick and Leah keep me entertained on my long commute.

We Need This

The hosts are great! In these unsettling days we need some civility lessons! Thank you, if I had your address I would send a card 😍

Love it!

I’m addicted to this podcast. I just discovered it and am listening to multiple episodes a day. They give lots of good advice in an interesting and humorous way.

Just a gem!

What a bright spot in a challenging time! Leah and Nick are such complementary forces for good. I just can’t get enough!

So delightful!

I just recently found this podcast, and I have been listening obsessively! Every half hour has a blend of light humor, gracious descriptions of moments of kindness, and saltiness, which I truly appreciate.

Fabulous show!

I cannot get enough of this podcast! Nick and Leah make you feel like you’re chatting it up with your besties and I find myself chatting along, answering questions and laughing at all the fun anecdotes! My kids love it too and I think learn so much, especially when it’s a topic I’ve brought up but they seem to give it much more street credit coming from these two! Great fun! Keep all the great info coming! Leah, keep on howling and please keep in cordials of kindness. There can never be too much! Thank you both for all you give!

Entertaining, educational, fun. I feel validated! Turns out there wasn't anything I could have done. Sometimes people are just rude. Thanks for the podcast!

It’s a Delight!

Everything about this podcast makes me smile! It’s a lovely mental sorbet if you tend to go down the murder track for too long. The hosts are charming and have a lovely rapport. It’s interesting. It’s educational. It’s kind. It’s hilarious. It’s also clean so no worries having it blasting when you arrive at the coffee window. I love learning etiquette tips and especially hearing the questions from listeners. Vent or Repent is another great segment! Just go listen - you’ll be happily hooked.

I lovvveeee this podcast

The hosts are so charming, kind, and funny!

Love it!

Love this show! Nick and Leah are entertaining, fun and conversational. They have lots of little segments to mix things up and work in a lot of jokes while also managing to pack tons of practical advice in each episode. They go through scenarios and options, and even tell you the textbook Miss Manners answer while weighing in with their own ideas. I like how they talk about setting boundaries too.

Mr and Mrs Wolfe aka mom and dad

Yes, as a matter of fact, I was raised by Wolfes, L. Wolfe

What a gem

Not only are the hosts hilarious, I just love the idea behind a podcast trying to inspire manners and kindness in a world that so desperately needs a nicelift.

Love this podcast

I discovered this podcast last week and haven’t listened to anything else since!


Where has this been all my life!?! The second I heard Nick mention Mummenachanz I was all in!!

My new favorite podcast!

I just heard about Were You Raised by Wolves this week and am now going back to listen to every episode. I cannot get enough; this podcast is so entertaining and educational!

Adorable and lovely!

Thank you for the amazing tips and comedy!

Binge worthy

I am so glad Apple Spotlight featured this show. As soon as I saw the suggestion I wanted to listen. I have been binging for 3 days now. Nick and Leah feel like good friends I can trust with my anxiety of navigating this wild world with grace and dignity. Absolutely fabulous gem of a podcast.

Tell Everyone! Cult Classic!

I’ve told 4 people about this podcast in the last week, I love it! Must have for anyone who wishes to be both kind and clear in how they communicate and show up in the world. Ps. Reply to the wedding invitation with your own stationary, people! Live your truth!

This podcast is the ultimate relief from tension…

I love the focus on the little things (some not so little). I love the attitudes, the banter, the advice! This podcast is such an escape from, well, everything I want to escape from. I love the intelligence applied to the everyday behaviors we all experience and sometimes exhibit. I listen to an episode whenever I want to feel better about the world. It seems that Nick and Leah are actually helping to improve the world in their own way, and I am glad.

Nice escape!

Love! This is a lovely way to stop focusing on politics and depressing news of the day and just enjoy a pleasant and funny conversation about lighter issues. A new favorite for sure.

Absolutely Amazing

I love,love,love this podcast. It teaches me new things, and I feel personally ashamed that I have committed some of the etiquette crimes, and I am shocked about these rules. This podcast is teaching me to be a better person, and I love the witty, quick banter in this show. Thank you Leah and Nick!

Necessary Podcast

I have enjoyed this podcast so much. I’ve learned a lot not just about etiquette but about setting boundaries (Thank you Leah). I have on so many occasions audibly gasped and my mouth held a gap and some of the audacity of the rude behaviors. I will say though that some etiquette is very regional. For instance, waiters in my part of the country (S Louisiana) always ask up front how the checks will be split so I’ve never encountered an issue with having to figure out the proper way to address splitting the bill. That concept is so foreign to me. Anywho…I love this show and I enjoy Nick and Leah very much.

Everyone should subscribe

What a fun and informative podcast! I love hearing the hosts debate and come to agreements on etiquette because I was not raised by wolves but I might have missed some tips on how to behave properly in this world. Thank you!

This is a modern guide/podcast which helps with making everyone feel good about social situations. Great ideas for useful turns of phrases and hosting or understanding how to put people at ease. It's fun, with a positive attitude about the rudest situations.

I feel validated 😅

I’m so thankful to have found this show because of the spotlight!! Yay! I love the cheery, banter filled episodes that are so relevant to actual life situations where people have either been raised by wolves, or are wolves themselves and as a non-wolf, sometimes I’m stumped on how to respond. So, thank you for existing!

So much fun while learning how to do life well

I love how Nick and Leah are engaging and humble enough to talk about their own mistakes. Some of the examples are hysterical, but they use each example to reinforce the principles of why being polite is important and how to use your best judgment to determine what the polite thing is to do. It’s been one of my favorite podcasts throughout the pandemic and makes Monday mornings something to look forward to. Keep up the great work!

Informative and Funny

I love this so much! Just found RBW last spring and plowed through all episodes within 3 weeks. My 12 yr old made fun of me for listening to a “manners show,” but he’s grown to love it and now listens to it while walking home from school. He recently noticed one of his friends was having a zipper malfunction and whispered to him, “your pod bay door is open, Hal” 😂

Fun and educational podcast!

Both hosts are very entertaining, and provide good advice (as well as validate complaints that so many have regarding rude people). I like learning things I didn’t know before (such as “don’t say ‘congratulations’ to a bride) and feeling more prepared for any awkward situation that may arise.

Best of the Best...

Leah & Nick prove that opposites attract... Humor & Knowlege and Common Sense exudes from this very FUN Podcast !!! I am 75 and listen to them in my art studio, adding just the right balance for so much creativity. They are the BEST... don’t miss them. Joan (Athens, Ga)

I am in love with Nick and Leah!

This show is SO delightful. I just marathoned all the episodes and CANNOT WAIT for the next one. More, please!! (I'll write you a hand-written thank you note!) Truly a great show!


This is an amazing podcast…it is funny, intelligent, and entertaining. Well done!

Love it!

Absolutely great ! Great to listen to while in the office and always learning how to handle difficult situations!

Fun fun fun in serious world ...with Standards

As an unsocialized floundering offspring of a wolf and a sheep (er wait: maybe a wolf in sheep's clothing?) I deeply appreciate the funny, fun-loving witty minds of the hosts. They keep us engaged and hold us to the highest standards of good behavior and good taste.

not your grandma's etiquette class

being autistic i struggle a lot with social cues and such, but this podcast is just the right mix of informative without being condescending or better-than-thou.

Fun, light and informative

The hosts keep it moving along with a mix of segments. The show is just right, not too long but covering a few different topics. It’s not condensing or snooty but it is honest. The hosts, like all of us, do or say something less than perfect we can learn from and improve on. Give it a listen, you’ll enjoy it.

Hilarious Show

This show is so funny, I can’t stop laughing

Where have you two been all my life?!

This podcast is a perfect storm of awesomeness - funny, educational, and oh-so-needed. I didn’t realize just how many everyday-type questions I had until Nick and Leah answered them. Also, they are self-depreciating, practical, and thoughtful as they think through situations and offer advice, which is so refreshing. And, maybe most importantly, they have validated most (all?) of the annoying human behavior stuff that makes me crazy - no small achievement. Listen, you’ll love it!

You might think a podcast about socially acceptable behavior would be dry, but this show is entertaining and so much fun! Nick and Leah keep it to an ideal predictable length for interesting discussions that don't get bogged down and run on and on. And on. I know how much time I'm committing before I tune in. Plus, you get the pleasure of being shocked by stories of socially feral behaviors. Perfect.

Leah and Nick now live in my head.

This show has made me a better person! I’ve learned so much about proper etiquette through listening, and now whenever I find myself in an etiquette conundrum, I ask myself: what would Leah and Nick do?

Kind and funny

I love Leah and Nick! They are thoughtful and kind, and relate to our etiquette woes with humor and decisiveness. Great show!

Perfect balance of entertaining and informational

My husband and I both love this podcast! We love that it’s fun and conversational but also really informative. Even the niche topics that we will probably never encounter in our own lives are really interesting and fun to learn about. It’s great to have a teacher that tells you when you’re wrong but doesn’t make you feel stupid about it. This is always one of our first recommendations to friends when they ask what podcasts they should try.

Wholesome and funny!

I’ve recently finished listening to the show’s entire backlog and just loved it so much! Not much makes me laugh anymore the way Nick & Leah’s witty repartee does. Such a joy, I’m sad I now have to wait a week between episodes!

This is a Five Star Podcast

I do not understand how this show gets an overall rating of only 4.8. There are a few negative reviews from people who are clearly humorless, and one glowing review from someone who almost certainly mistakenly assigned only 2 stars. This is a 5 star podcast and the vast majority of the reviews are spot on. Nick and Leah are delightful and will make you laugh out loud while teaching you some manners. When someone suggested it to me I thought, yeah sure, I'll listen to one episode to be polite. But I've now binged the entire back catalog and can't wait for each new episode. FIVE STARS, PEOPLE. ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️

Entertaining and Educational!

Leah and Nick entertain and educate with humor and kindness. I know you will love listening!


This podcast is one of the highlights of my week. It is at turns educational, entertaining, and comedic. I hope the hosts continue to make it for years to come.

I am in love with Nick and Leah!

This show is SO delightful. I just marathoned all the episodes and CANNOT WAIT for the next one. More, please!! (I'll write you a hand-written thank you note!) Truly a great show!!

I’ve learned so much!

This podcast is excellent! As someone who was raised by wolves, I’ve learned so much from listening to these episodes. Ive noticed some things I do regularly that I need to repent for. Serious thank you to Nick and Leah for 2 great points of view on these etiquette scenarios-there is so much great advice. Thank you!!

Best Ever! First Class! Everything!

I love this podcast so much! I found it, became immediately hooked, binged it, and then listened to it all over again. Sadly, I now am forced to wait each week to listen. I have never enjoyed a podcast this much and I look forward to it every week. It is fun, hilarious, and so interesting! The format and segments are nicely done. I am always cracking up as I listen. I love Nick and Leah, they are both fantastic and really great together. Maybe consider doing more than once a week!?

The best!!

My favorite podcast! Laugh-out-loud hilarious AND useful. I discovered it 2 months ago and have listened to every episode since. Perfect levity for heavy times.

Best podcast

I discovered WYRBW in December and I got to binge every episode after work, which was my favorite past time during quarantine. Now I just look forward to Monday’s for the first time ever for new episodes! It’s relatable and informative but most importantly, it always leaves you smiling


Nick and Leah have been keeping me company on all my errands for the last week couple of weeks. Since my first listen, I’ve let all the other podcasts in the queue pile up. They are kind and gracious and most of funny. My favorite kind of people!

Every episode makes me lol

Witty, informative, and so helpful! The hosts are both hilarious and have a very fun dynamic. They also give truly thoughtful and insightful advice. Love!


It seems appropriate to thank you for this gift of a podcast. Learning, laughing, and sharing all this new knowledge! I appreciate you both!

Fun and educational

Love Nick & Leah!! Give this show two episodes before deciding if you like it. I liked it after #2 and was hooked by #3. Episodes average 30 min as well, so they are a nice length but don’t drag on forever like some podcasts do. Nick & Leah have great chemistry as hosts. I love how polite and serious Nick tries to be when reading the letters from listeners, and then Leah speaks her mind passionately on whether she agrees or disagrees with “etiquette offenders.” The listener letters are hysterical. Thanks Nick & Leah for providing entertainment to get me through the boring second half of my work day:)

I am in love with Nick and Leah!

This show is SO delightful. I just marathoned all the episodes and CANNOT WAIT for the next one. More, please!! (I'll write you a hand-written thank you note!) Truly a great show!

I love this show! Nick and Leah give solid advice for real-world problems while also offering humor and interesting etiquette tidbits.

I truly enjoy this show - it's adorable and they talk about things that really matter: like which fork to use and when you need to send thank you cards. This is a nice break from the unhappy noise of the world.

My newest obsession!

I love this pod! It's so easy to listen too. The voices of the hosts are easy on the ears and the length is perfect for my drive. I am also able to share with my daughter and we can discuss etiquette. That's a major plus as she is 6 and I want to impart the importance of etiquette and manners without making it seem like you have to a doormat to others. I have always been enthralled by etiquette and this podcast just makes my heart happy. I can not stop talking about it!

Podcast 78 husband irked by mom washing sheets

I think if it offends the husband that his mother in law is washing the sheets upon her departure, the wife should bring it up with her mom not to wash the sheets; provided that the husband agrees to wash & replace them on the guest bed in the future within 6 hours of the mother in laws departure. IF he fails to timely get this accomplished within the 6 hour window, he shall pay for a spa service, hair service or shopping trip in the amt of $300.00. I think that’s fair.

So awesome!!

Nick and Leah are soooooo fun to listen to! Funny, smart...every second of this podcast is great. I’ve learned a lot, and laughed a TON. I very much recommend this podcast.

You need this podcast in your life

_Were You Raised By Wolves?_ is wildly entertaining, educational, and relatable. Nick and Leah are a perfect pair. Just simply a delight to listen to each week - I laugh, I learn, I impatiently wait a week and then do it all again. The show is expertly organized and edited ; no rambling or long-winded tangents here (although I wouldn’t mind a little of that at all from these two - can’t get enough!). My only criticism is that the bonus episodes do not include the AMAZING and *very* danceable theme song at the intro.

Cordials of Kindness

I’d like to thank YOU, Nick and Leah! For leading us through the wilderness of etiquette with your knowledge and hilarity. I look forward to each and every episode!

A howl out to Nick & Leah!

Were you raised by wolves? is fantastically entertaining, heart-warming, and renewing faith in humanity one answer, vent or repent at a time.

Love it!

Absolutely great ! It has made me more cautious and mindful with interacting in the world.

I am in love with Nick and Leah!

This show is SO delightful. I just marathoned all the episodes and CANNOT WAIT for the next one. More, please!! (I'll write you a hand-written thank you note!) Truly a great show!!

Manners Still Matter!

I love this podcast! Nick and Leah are entertaining AND educational. I learn something new every time I listen. Highly recommend this podcast if you are into manners and etiquette.

Fabulous podcast

Nick and Leah are wonderful. Each week they make me smile and give me hope for a kinder, happier and funnier world. Can’t wait for each new episode!

My new obsession

I adore this podcast. It’s funny, it’s informative, it’s relatable and Nick and Lea have great chemistry. I love everything about this podcast, never stop!

Great podcast!

I love this fun show. The hosts have a wonderful rapport. They are knowledgeable and thoughtful without being condescending, Their advice is spot on too!

Nick and Leah are amazing

There’s a tiktok line that has become very viral because I think a lot of us feel like we’ve been slowly losing the knowledge on how to interact with people (both strangers and not): “at this point in covid I am 98% feral and I will not be able to go back to civilization”. Nick and Leah give me hope for the future that I may be able to come out on the other side somewhat still self- (and socially) aware.

You are a cordial of kindness!

I love how much I have learned about interacting with people during this year of non interactions! The wolves that raised me would be proud of your kind, gentle reminders of how people can be a better with a touch more manners. Thank you

Best way to start a week!

I was suggested this podcast by a friend over a year ago and it has been a regular in my podcast rotation ever since. Nick and Leah are witty and charming, and make Mondays not so bad.

My favorite podcast!

There is so much to love about RBW. Nick and Leah’s banter is probably the top reason. They are having so much fun, and I am guaranteed several out-loud laughs per episode. I love the amuse-bouche because Leah and I will always learn something new from Nick and his research. I love the way Nick and Leah work through the letter-writers’ questions, and that their advice sometimes evolves as they hear each other out. And I especially love Leah’s howl from the wilderness! Thanks for a great show!

A balm for the weary soul

Nick and Leah are so quick, funny, and incisive that listening to them feels like whizzing along on a bike on the first day of spring. My go-to “listen to before bed to effectively keep the existential dread at bay” podcast, and the only podcast whose episodes I’ve ever re-listened-to because they were just too fun to only listen once!

Great podcast

Nick and Leah you are great and thank you for the honest advice and not sugarcoating the issues and not giving everyone a trophy! You are both awesome 💕

A great way to start the week

I look forward to Monday mornings because that is when the new episodes of Were You Raised by Wolves are released! The podcast is both useful and delightful. Nick and Leah make me think but also give me a good chuckle in the process. I find them both to be smart and charming. Subscribe!

So fun

Great chemistry between the hosts and a vast spectrum of etiquette situations make for a fun and interesting listen. Hard to imagine a listener not learning something new and/or chuckling at the hosts’ exchanges. Loving it!

Delightful In Every Way

This is my new favorite podcast! It’s light and funny, but also surprisingly informative, and even a little cathartic. Nick and Leah have such great senses of humor and sparkling chemistry. Were You Raised by Wolves is a delight!

Love it!

I look forward to this every week. It’s fun and light hearted and always put a smile on my face :)

Don’t be a savage

One of the funniest and informative podcasts that you didn’t know you needed! I’ve learned so many great things about how not to act like an animal in polite society! Awooooooooooooo!

Funny and informative

These two are an absolute hoot and I wish I were friends with them in real life! They offer thought-out, sensible etiquette advice and have lots of fun conversation doing so. Very entertaining!

simply enjoyable

This is one of those podcasts were listening to it, you feel as though you are sitting at a table with some friends having a lively discussion. I was definitely raised by wolves - we ate ice cream from the container, never waited for everyone to sit down to start eating, and many more atrocities Ms Manners would be aghast at. While I am hardly reverent to manners now, this podcast brings levity and entertainment to my workday. And I do at least learn what I was supposed to be doing all along, even if I don’t act on it ;) Thanks Leah and Nick!

This is a GREAT podcast!

I have not historically been a podcast person, but one of my resolutions for 2021 waste try some out instead of just playing the same music over and over. I am SO glad I started this one. Nick and Leah and funny and nice to listen to, and I’ve also learned a lot. I finish every episode just feeling happy. And sometimes snarky - in a good way. I burned through all their recent episodes while cooking in the kitchen or walking around town, so I’m now working through older ones, and I hope I never run out.

Yes Yes Yes!

This podcast is the ONLY podcast I confidently subscribe to. Thank you for making me laugh. Thank you for not having annoying commercials ten times throughout your show. Thank you for giving me a little joy when I see there is a new episode. LISTEN TO THIS PODCAST!

Be a better person by listening to this podcast!

Nick and Leah give absolutely fantastic advice on how to navigate tricky situations while being kind, courteous, and still looking out for yourself. It is such a delight to hear new episodes every week!

I absolutely LOVE this podcast, and the hosts are perfect!

This is some awesome, and welcomingly wholesome, entertainment wrapped into an educational club sandwich of delight! Nick and Leah have a pretty great friendship, and they present these episodes with such great energy. I absolutely adore all of their “Oh!”s (there are so many! Haha) that they each vocalize in response to some surprising bit of information or opinion, etc. It’s a thoroughly great time! I am currently binging from the beginning, and it just brightens my day! When my kids are a bit older, I plan to have this podcast as a part of their homeschooling curriculum! (Social studies! It counts!!)

Run, don’t walk, to subscribe!

This fantastic podcast has it all - witty repartee, substance, and inspiration for all of us to make this world better together!

lighthearted and you learn stuff!

Just a really sweet, thoughtful podcast about navigating manners and socializing that doesn't beat you over the head with yelling and raging. Nick and Leah are great together. And yeah, you learn stuff! Like how to eat from a cheese plate! And hopefully you'll learn that you fall on the right sidfe of the manners line!

One of the BEST podcasts out there

Each week I’m so excited to hear the fresh release only to be sad when it’s over! Just can’t get enough! Clutch my pearls! I laugh out loud and most often totally agree with the answers given ... although that’s not to say I haven’t learned new things!!! Often I’m shocked at the audacity of some people! Thanks for standing up for doing what’s right and kind! If you need something positive and encouraging in these dark days... listen! You’ll be so glad you did!

I am in love with Nick and Leah!!

This show is SO delightful. I just marathoned all the episodes and CANNOT WAIT for the next one. More, please!! (I'll write you a hand-written thank you note!) Truly a great show!!

Opera episode, etc.

Working my way to the earlier episodes, back from the top. Enjoying them all, because every episode is brilliant. But WHY is the "number of ratings" STUCK at 645? That is ABSOLUTELY impossible. Over the last 3 months, it must have reached 10,000 👍🏼, and yet -- the needle never moves! PLEASE check that out, O techy person who accesses the Apple Podcasts infrastructure (substructure? Superstructure?) ! Seriously: verify!!!

This is so good

I love Nick and Leah. Everyone needs to listen to this podcast so no one has to wonder if they were raised by wolves.

Triple Cream French Brie

My desert island cheese is a triple cream French brie! I’m only 4 binge episodes in but this is my new favorite. Awfully hard to listen while running - do not recommend doing this for fear of laughter tripping you up. Too many laughs. I often use the phrase “were you raised by wolves?”, especially when talking to my roommates about the brand new dish towels that end up crumpled up and wet on the opposite side of the kitchen instead of hung back nicely where they found them. This show validates so many thoughts-how self satisfying!

A Lifesaver!

I don’t remember how I found this podcast but, OMG, I am so glad I did! After a year full of nothing but bad news and dire predictions, this thirtyish minute break in my day has been a lifesaver! My only concern now is what will I do when I am caught up with all the back episodes and only have one a week to depend on! Maybe the world will have calmed down by then. Thank you for this silly and yet sophisticated respite of entertaining information! Proud to be a wild pup!

Informative and funny

Thanks for the great show!

Both helpful and hilarious! 💯🛠😆❤️

Perfect combination of utility and entertainment! I can relate so much to having these grievances/questions and am glad that I now have a resource for the answers. Keep it up, Nick and Leah!

Nick and Leah are a light in my life

I’ve been binging this podcast for a few weeks now and I just love the levity that Nick and Leah bring to a lot of really tough situations. They take me out of every day stresses, and teach me things I had no idea I didn’t know. They have such a warm, bright friendship and you can tell there is real affection there. Absolutely tops in terms of podcast hosts, and Nick replied to a question I sent in and was absolutely lovely. He actually wrote the email, no form letter or anything like that. I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised, this is the man that lives and dies by written thank you notes. He had no way of knowing my life is incredibly stressful right now, and that email nearly brought me to tears. It was so kind. Thank you guys! Keep it up, I am always looking forward to your new episodes.

Very entertaining

This is one of my favorite podcasts. Great to have on while you cook, drive across town, etc. I love hearing all of the crazy predicaments other listeners get in. It’s a strange world sometimes! Nick and Leah give good advice and their reactions are great. Nick is the etiquette expert, while Leah is all of us who hate awkwardness/confrontation and just want there to be peace. They balance each other perfectly. And I can’t resist singing along to the theme song! Would definitely recommend.

You tube video etiquette

Thank you for touching on my admittedly anal question/rant. And to clarify...Yes (thank you Nick!) I did mean in person. As in- live/in real time/face to face. Xox

My new favorite podcast!

Great advice and I laugh out loud every time

My Favorite

These two make me laugh out loud. They are both fabulous. Also, Leah has the best laugh EVER and I love that Nick likes to write personal notes. Follow them (even if it’s off a cliff!)!


The advice that I’ve received from Nick and Leah has directly influenced on my life in a positive way on several occasions! I’m so grateful to have their help when negotiating tricky social situations. Helpful and fun. Bravo!


You guys are making me so happy tonight, thank you!!!

Love this podcast!

Silly, fun, smart and wise, Nick and Leah are charming.

So funny and informative!

Nick and Leah are a perfect podcast pair - Nick as the expert and Leah as the funny girl who reacts to each topic from her down-to-earth and casual perspective. You're bound to learn something about the proper way to partake from a cheese tray and how to behave in social settings that may have you wondering if you're about to commit a faux pas. I like that there is humor without meanness in the discussions.

I recommend this to EVERYONE

I truly ADORE you both and this podcast. I have so many laughs and look forward to a new episode every week. Nick and Leah are absolute delights and they bring me so much joy!! Island Cheese: Drunken Goat Cheese - highly recommend that as well. PS. Nick, you and I share the same washer/dryer fantasy.
