How to Behave is a fun, freewheeling and irreverent conversation about all aspects of our behavior and its effects on the people around us. Topics will range from simple matters of etiquette, like which fork to use at a fancy dinner or when and how to tip, to bigger social issues like how to handle racial conflict in the workplace or how to break up with someone. There will be expert guests like etiquette professionals or psychologists as well as working professionals such as waiters, flight attendants and customer service reps to tell stories of behavior, bad and good. While the topics will be serious, the tone will be light-hearted, cutting edge and, most of all, funny.

"People don't want to watch porn with condoms in the film. It destroys the element of fantasy." [7:30]
"The primary objective of condoms in porn films is the public health aspect- condoms protect the actors from getting STDs or transmitting them to their partners. But the secondary message is that wearing condoms is normal." [17:30]
