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 m…

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, y…

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…

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 bef…

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 bu…

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 …

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 …

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 …

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 …

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 with…

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. …

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-win…

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.

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 hop…

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…

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 …

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…

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 feel…

Yes Yes Yes!

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 …

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 si…

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 pe…

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 c…

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 …

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 …

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 rea…

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 i…

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 …

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 f…

I look forward to listening every week

Nick and Leah, thank you for this delightful, funny, and educational podcast. I have learned so much, and have had such fun listening. My desert island cheese is Cabot extra sharp cheddar. I lived on an actual island for a few months, and this was the cheese I missed the most! Also, even though…

Funny and Fresh

This is my favorite podcast. Among the craziness that is 2020 and beyond, I am delighted every week when I get to escape my stress for a few minutes, and listen to the hilarious etiquette crimes others encounter. Any podcast that gets to use the word “egregious” multiple times, is worth a listen. …

Everyone could benefit from listening to this show

As a person who would consider herself socially aware and polite, I've already learned so much. This show is simultaneously informative and cathartic, and Nick and Leah have the perfect host dynamic. My new favorite podcast!

Shining Point of the Week!

I look forward to my Monday's because a new episode is released. Funny, poignant, and educational.


Terrific podcast. Great chemistry between the hosts, plenty of humor, and good advice on manners. I love this podcast.

Hilarious and educational, all in one

My favorite podcast! If everyone listened to this show and heeded their advice, the world would be a better place. In the meantime, this can bring you some joy and relief, knowing there are others also suffering from the accidental rudeness of strangers and loved ones alike everywhere in the world.

Great show!

This was an unexpected find for me- I don’t even remember how I learned about the show. But I’m so happy I did! I love both the hosts, and I also love that it’s not incessant banter like many other shows. You can see their personalities but they get right to the topics. Always a fun and informative…

Get ready to be educated

Nick and Leah are prepared to answer any etiquette query thrown at them. All while being effortlessly charming and fun. They helped me with my dream catcher conundrum and I couldn’t be more thankful.

Confused? Don’t be!

Don’t know how to act in public? It’s ok! Nick and Leah will navigate you through the maze of etiquette. These two crack me UP! This is my new favorite podcast!

A great show on etiquette and good life tips.

The hosts warm my heart and appreciate their chemistry as they field questions regarding etiquette and manners. I have used their examples in real life situations with great results, too.

Fantastic show alert!

Leah and Nick are a lovely pair of proponents of good manners. We need them to guide us towards a world where bad behavior is a distant memory. Listen to this podcast and reap the rewards.

My new favorite podcast!

I love the witty banter and funny exchanges of these fantastic hosts. I now look forward to Mondays because that’s when new episodes drop!

Fun and educational podcast!

Both host’s 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.

At first I was intimidated ...

But Nick’s no-nonsense directives tempered by Leah’s relatability assured me that I too, could be a contributing member of civil society. I thank them for being the shining beacons of light guiding me through, past and beyond the undergrowth of cringeworthy behaviours that eclipse my path through…

Listen from start to finish - you won’t be disappointed

“Were you raised by wolves?” is a refreshing take on the world of modern etiquette. The content is relatable and the hosts feedback is incredibly relevant in our modern society. The hosts are especially engaging and happen to be my favorite part of the show! I love the rapport between Nick and Le…

Just what society needs.

Nick and Leah make learning about manners so easy and FUN! I love listening and learning! This is my favorite podcast, and listening should be mandatory for all humans. ❤️. In this year, amid the pandemic and every other icky thing, this podcast makes my day.

Weekly dose of delightful

In the chaos that is 2020, Nick and Leah’s civilized discussions of etiquette conundrums is a welcome respite. I always learn something new, and frequently come away feeling prepared to address whatever social situation comes my way.

What a refreshing and delightful podcast!

I recently found this podcast and it has quickly become one of my favorites. This program feels as if you’re being let into a conversation between friends rather than a stiff debate on etiquette. I find the introductory tidbits (amuse-bouche) thoroughly entertaining, and the ending (cordials of kin…

Joyful, intelligent, and makes me feel better when I get mad at strangers

I come from a family who thinks the way they do things or feel about things is right, and everyone else who does or feels different is barbaric (I’m being dramatic, but only a little).... so this show really resonates with me and provides a hilarious sense of gratification and confirmation in my st…

My “going for a walk” podcast of choice

Nick and Leah never disappoint with this fresh, hilarious, and informative podcast that is always my number one choice for daily walks. It really is the cats meow! Highly recommend to anyone who is or wants to be a decent human being. Thanks Nick and Leah!
