    Okay, I've been thinking about making this thread for a while, but for some reason I can't words good, so let me just c/p from Skype:
    It's a podcast about manners! Which sounds like the boringest and worst thing ever but it's actually been really good for my social anxiety bc they spell stuff out and frame it as "Here are things that can help people get along better and feel included and simplify communication" instead of how I think a lot of people with social probs feel about manners/etiquette, which is "this is the test, the grading curve is secret, the questions aren't written down clearly, and if you mess up you shall be Shunned."

    The show is hosted by a husband/wife duo. Travis McElroy, whose name you may recognize from his other podcasts Bunker Buddies, Interrobang, Trends Like These, MBMBaM, and The Adventure Zone, is a professional Internet Guy. Teresa McElroy is a manners expert, loyal fan of miss Emily Post, and general beacon of positivity and goodwill towards humankind.

    Has anyone else listened to it? If so, has it helped you?
