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.
