Mondays at 5:00PM EST
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.

How to Behave - Episode 22 - The 'First Week at College' Show
How does one behave during their first week of college? On this week's edition of How to Behave, Brian Keyser and Hannah Howard talk with two relatively new college students: Alexys Hewitt (freshman, NYU) and Billie Kanfer (sophomore, Skidmore College). Tune in to hear how Alexys is adjusting to the big city coming from Fargo, North Dakota, and how Billie is liking Saratoga Springs after spending her whole life in New York City. Hannah tells a horrifying freshman orientation story about being stranded in the wilderness, and Billie's mother, Holly, talks about college in a time before computers. Do all incoming freshman stalk their roommates on Facebook before orientation these days? Find out how Alexys is dealing with city threats like mugging, and learn about Billie's experiences as a dorm RA! This program has been sponsored by Fairway Market. Music provided by Jon Lundbom & Big Five Chord.
