Etiquette, manners, and beyond! Join Emmy® Award-winning journalist Nick Leighton and stand-up comic Leah Bonnema ("Late Show with Stephen Colbert") as they help you avoid being the odd man out, the wallflower, pariah, or “that guy” in the “Do you believe that guy?” Whether you were born with a silver spoon in your mouth or you use a silver spoon to serve caviar (ew!), WERE YOU RAISED BY WOLVES? will teach you the rules of the game to avoid embarrassment and get ahead. Each episode, you'll learn how proper behavior, good manners, and impeccable etiquette can help you smoothly glide through any situation, win friends, and influence people. No matter where you come from or what group you hang with, WERE YOU RAISED BY WOLVES? will help you be a better person...or at least make people think you are, which is all that really matters anyway.
