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.

This week on How to Behave, Brian Keyser and Hannah Howard talk Christmas traditions with a wealth of wine-flavored guests: Brie-Elizabeth Conway, Barrett Conway, Destiny Dudley, and Tom Wood. Find out how far some of the guests traveled to get a Christmas tree, and why New Yorkers are spoiled by bodega Christmas trees. Why do Christmas tree prices mirror rents in the city? Tune in to hear Barrett talk about how Christmas is celebrated at his home in Heidelberg, Germany! This program has been sponsored by Underground Meats. Music by Jon Lundbom & Big Five Chord.
