A wonderful Insta-friend recommended this and she was spot on. I absolutely love this podcast (yes I went back to listen to all the episodes starting from the 1st!). They discuss so many topics and I never fail to learn something new. Will be recommending to everyone!
This is my favorite podcast to listen to, high key. I started listening to this podcast in the beginning of 2020 as a way to brush up on my etiquette skills as I mature into an adult. It’s refreshing to listen to this podcast, especially during these hard times. For months, this was the only podcast I could listen to that didn’t mention COVID, as I was sick of hearing about it on the news. Nick and Leah vibe together so well. And they’ve managed to make etiquette actually fun. This podcast is great for both adults and children. As someone who was “raised by Wolves” I am thankful for any resource that can assist me in becoming a refined adult.
I just love this show! A wide variety of topics and situations are discussed. Manners, etiquette and being mindful of the feelings of other people have never been more important!
I don’t listen to every episode of this podcast just because the title makes me LOL. I listen because it is both fun and informative. I was raised to be polite and tried to pass that on to my daughter. She knows I will wave in thanks if a car’s driver lets me change lanes in front of them (nobody seems to do that anymore) ... or will say “ excuse me” when burping in an empty room. What I don’t do as well is handle my feelings when others behave as if wolves raised them. This is where Nick’s advice comes in so handy because he has such a light touch. He makes the medicine go down with a spoonful of sugar. Reader letters are answered with thoughtfulness and in good humor and Nick and Leah play off each other nicely. Keep dispensing advice, you two, and stay safe.
I love hearing Nick and Leah’s commentary and advice on etiquette issues. They manage to come across as simultaneously animated, informative, entertaining, and kind. In contrast to other podcasts that dwell on the (abundant) miseries of the world, Were You Raised By Wolves? focuses on the little and big ways we can maintain civility and kindness. Bravo!
I started listening to WRYBW during the 2020 global pandemic. I would’ve loved this at any time, but especially right now, having a couple extra friendly voices in my world talking about things that befuddle, vex or “grind my gears” is a welcome diversion. The show is a unique mix of entertaining and educational, and both the hosts restore my faith in the goodness of humanity. I also take a lot of real life lessons from the episodes. Thank you Leah and Nick!
The hosts are thoughtful, interesting and always entertaining. I love the combination of everyday and obscure topics and the easy repartee and obvious friendship between Leah and Nick. I became a Patreon member and now get to look forward to an extra shot of WYRBW during the week… Yay! Many thanks for bringing a little extra sunshine into my day and always making me laugh.
This well-paced podcast is a joy every week! Nick is like a true friend politely clueing you in to potential faux pas, and Leah is a fabulous compliment! They have good chemistry, and stay on topic, with little personal tidbits, (not derailing the whole show on an off-topic rant!). If you are not the least bit interested in etiquette, you will still love this fun show! It’s often the highlight of my week,
Who knew a podcast about etiquette could be so entertaining. This show is lots of fun and a lovely distraction from the depressing news everyday. Thank you!
I ADORE this podcast. I feel as though I am learning so much, from tiny but deep dives into very specific etiquette situations to thoughtful advice on common situations to validation of my feelings about etiquette crimes. My nana would be very pleased to know I regularly spend time improving my politeness skills. Plus, the relationship and fondness between the hosts comes through so clearly and is just fun to listen to. Thanks, y’all!
I’ve spent so long in quarantine that I’ve almost forgotten about etiquette quandaries! This podcast has made me laugh and cringe at etiquette crimes. Thank you to Nick and Leah!
People listen to this podcast! Graciousness, laughter, and fun facts. What’s not to like!?!
I love the chemistry between the hosts and their succinct answers to etiquette questions. Nice modern take.
I love so much about this podcast. Especially the way the hosts try to figure out what etiquette should be in today’s world (not just Miss Manner’s world). Funny, thought-provoking and informative.
I’m a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, and I really appreciate you looking into what we prefer to be called! Depending on who I’m with and how casual I feel like being, I might call myself Mormon if they already know that I believe in Christ and am Christian. To a stranger, I would give the full title, unless they used Mormon first. Than I would make a casual note about it being a nickname, make sure they know our true name, and not worry about it after that.
Happy this podcast exists! Our community would be better served if more people listened and applied proper etiquette. Thank y’all!
This podcast is everything I needed and wanted it to be! I often find myself asking “who raised you?”, so this is excellent affirmation that I’m not crazy.
Look forward to this podcast every week! Very entertaining and I learn something new each time I listen. I also love the relationship between the two hosts! They are so fun and it’s interesting to see their different points of view!
I look forward to listening to this podcast on my way home from work every week. Great job guys appreciate you
Seriously love, love, love your show! My anxiety is at an all time low knowing the appropriate mannerisms and etiquette to tackle so many situations! Thank you for keeping me company and making me laugh out load with so many relatable situations!
I’m not exactly sure how I found this podcast, perhaps the wonderful algorithm gods at Apple led me to it. Whatever the reason, Nick and Leah keep me entertained and are the only deviation from my normal fare of news, business and similarly dry topics. I always end up with a hearty chuckle or the occasional belly laugh. Thank you! (Lisa in DC 😊)
Good every time. One note: Leah, could you consider that maybe you were right the first time, as a child, about lobsters? Think of our vast cruelty when we tear them apart after tying them up in captivity. Remember how smart they are and how long they live without us. Haven’t we done enough damage?
This show is such a breath of fresh air! Especially during such uncertain and unfamiliar times. I love that the format is consistent and I come away with new information after every episode! Many thanks to Nick and Leah! 💛
As a stay at home mom of two little boys, my brain is often thirsty for something other than Spiderman and poop jokes (though both are fun!). I look forward to Monday mornings because I listen to your podcast before diving into another week of child rearing. I learn a little something and always enjoy the banter. Leah and Nick, I think you are both lovely! Thanks for the podcast and keep them coming!
I never miss an episode. After having been raised by wolves myself I am trying to be a better example for my kids and not embarrass myself and others. They give you all the info you need in a fun format.
