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 the forest of life.

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 Leah. For an etiquette podcast, it’s not forced or stuffy. I have to say, this is the only podcast that actually makes me laugh out loud, thanks to the great hosts! Also, when you email them a question, you get a thoughtful response which is so appreciated (whether the question is chosen to be aired or not). Thank you, both! Highly, highly recommend. Tell your family, tell your friends. You won’t be disappointed! Enjoy.

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 kindness) are so pleasant. Thank you for putting some positivity forward in the world!

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 stances! I have actually gone back to listen to every episode of this show and have laughed and nodded in agreement to many, many topics. It has taught me so much about the history of etiquette - like why we answer a phone call with “Hello” - but also has insights on The Issues of Today (or first world problems), like sliding into someone’s DMs. This show brings me a lot of joy and I know it does for many others. I am hopeful the show continues for seasons to come, but am especially hopeful I will one day have a chance to call someone out by asking if they were raised by wolves.

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!

Much needed….

Good advice on how to deal with etiquette and social issues that don’t involve life or death are always welcomed. Our hosts are very helpful, fun, and the program is entertaining throughout. I appreciate they don’t make us wait long between episodes.

So fun to listen to!

I love listening to this podcast! The topics are so relatable and fun to listen to! I really learn something new every time I listen to an episode. I really appreciate the way Nick and Leah work through each question, very genuine.


My new favorite podcast! Great content and hosts! Always the best way to start the week

Fun, light, and educational!

This is my favorite podcast. The two hosts play off of each other very well. Nick is a hard-and-fast etiquette rule follower. Leah is more lenient. Both are funny and witty and a joy to listen to. The show covers a fun mix of topics. Some are practical, like what to do if you need to spit out a bite of food. Others are just entertaining. Great show!

Love it!

Such a fun listen and a reminder to use my manners :)

Head and shoulders above the rest

I stumbled onto this podcast and am so happy that I did after unsubscribing to another manners podcast - "Shmanners." The "Were You Raised by Wolves" hosts are funny, informative, timely and don't push a social agenda. Just good, practical advice delivered in an entertaining way. I think that listeners of all ages will find something to benefit from here.

Love this podcast

Not only is this podcast entertaining, I learn something new in each episode. I cannot recommend this podcast enough!

Love love love

SO happy when these show up in my feed! I almost always learn something... even though manners and grammar were a BIG DEAL in my family. I love the humor and I always get a good laugh!! I want to have a cocktail with Nick and Leah, they seem like so much fun.

Love this show

Funny, entertaining, and best of all I can listen with my little kids in the car. My three year old actually asks for the “wolves podcast” 🤣

Makes my Monday mornings :-)

Something funny and informative to look forward to on Monday mornings. Thank you, Leah and Nick!

Entertaining AND helpful in daily life!!

I love this show! Nick and Leah are absolutely delightful, and the subject matter is always interesting and often relevant to my daily life. Etiquette is such a lost art and difficult to navigate in our tech-heavy reality, and it's refreshing to hear thoughtful discussion and practical advice on common issues. I love the podcast so much that I joined their Patreon, which I would HIGHLY recommend to anyone for bonus fun videos, a Vent or Repent page, and a super helpful VIP hotline for etiquette questions. They have given me great advice on some etiquette conundrums I've had in my own life. And the Vent or Repent feature is just vital for surviving in this often rude world! Thanks Nick and Leah for putting on a great podcast!

I love this show!

This podcast warms my heart, teaches me something, and makes me laugh. Leah and Nick are such a good team. I sing the song to everyone I know!

This is my favorite show!

No salt on your buttery corn cobs, L? REALLY?!? I am shook. I friggin’ love this show. Always lifts me up and makes me smile 😊

Cute and Helpful

The cheerful hosts present practical advice for our little (but sometimes significant) etiquette queries. They have great rapport and make me smile (and sometimes verbally participate in their discussions) during my commute.

Such a wonderful, happy show!

This podcast has given me such joy in these hard times. The hosts are so funny and the topics are always interesting! I often listen in the middle of the night when I’m up with my baby, and it’s the perfect lighthearted show to keep me entertained and lessen my anxiety and worries.

Consistently entertaining and delightful!

Ugh, I know, a show about manners! Pretentious, right? Not with this team! I cannot get enough of this show. It’s funny 👏🏼 it’s interesting 👏🏼 it’s thought-provoking 👏🏼 it’s timely 👏🏼 “Were You Raised By Wolves” actually helps us become better, more thoughtful human beings! Why isn’t everyone listening to this? I can’t get enough of this podcast, and I recommend it to everyone!

Love this podcast!

Nick and Leah are awesome. Just the right amount of information and practical advice balanced with cheekiness and warmth. Both of them are so classy and kind.


Love love love the podcast. Nick and Leah have a great chemistry together, the podcast is funny, thoughtful and lighthearted. I can’t wait to listen to it every time it pops up on my feed. Keep up the good work guys and let’s spread some good manners in the world.

Love this podcast

It answers a lot of questions that I never thought of asking. Hosts have good synergy. However, I hate the obnoxious buzzer during Vent or Repent. Too loud and jarring especially with earbuds on. Pls replace it with something else 🙏

Best and Worst Parts of the Podcast

The best parts of this spectacular podcast are that it’s short, sweet, simple, and snappy! The rapport between Nick and Leah is to die for, and these two are definitely my dream dinner guests. The worst part of this podcast is that it DOESN’T HAVE ENOUGH EPISODES. I audibly gasped when I reached the most recent episode and realized I have to wait weekly to be entertained by these two and— cue the tears— I just couldn’t handle it. I haven’t found a single podcast as entertaining as this one and have gone through the episodes twice now. Leah’s howl will forever resonate in my heart. 12/10 HAVE ANNOYINGLY RECOMMENDED TO ALL MY FRIENDS AND FAMILY <3

Just what we need today!

I read a review in the LA Times a few months ago and I knew that I had to listen in. As our society manners continue to break down in the age of Karen’s and Trump tweets, I found the comfort of Nick’s etiquette obsession and Leah’s real world usage and repenting to be just the signpost that our fractured culture needed. If, like me, you were not raised by wolves and you want to have a respite from a world of obnoxious tweets, phone obsession and a lack of what used to be accepted common courtesy, then this is a podcast to embrace. Now, make your kids listen to it.


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!

My favorite podcast

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.
