    Vacationing During a Pandemic

    Vacationing During a Pandemic

    Have you decided where you'll be going on vacation this summer? Will you be going anywhere at all? For the latest advice on how Americans are choosing (and not choosing) to spend their holiday, we turned to Pauline Frommer, of the famed Frommer travel family and publisher of the highly respected Frommer's travel guides.
    From which airlines to fly on (and which ones to avoid) to what's happening with cruises, and from where in Europe you can still travel without restriction to which destinations Pauline recommends once the pandemic is safely in the rear-view mirror, this is an episode that will help get you on your way. And if a staycation is the only "trip" in your future for now, Pauline also recommends a slew of virtual excursions that may prove to be the next best thing to being there.

    Wedding Planner Meets Wedding Crasher

    Wedding Planner Meets Wedding Crasher

    In conversation with New York-based wedding planner Mikie Russo, a man who has overseen wedding soirées for celebrities including NSYNC member Joey Fatone; Kevin Jonas of the Jonas Brothers; and Shark Tank's Robert Herjavec, Mister Manners explores the fascinating world of coordinating nuptials.
    Hear Mikie's thoughts on how to make couples and their families happy, along with his strategy for handling the inevitable facets of the special day that go wrong.
    And yet, a wedding program with a typo or a centerpiece with wilty flowers are child's play at a time when couples getting married are hanging on every bit of news regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. It's a fair bet that planning a wedding has never been this challenging. There are so many unknowns in the mix that a day meant to be among the most joyous any of us ever experience has become a source of confusion and frustration. Tune in for the advice Mikie has been giving to his clients—all the while bearing in mind the inevitable etiquette issues associated with both postponing and not postponing.

    Could Comedy Be the Cure for COVID-19?

    Could Comedy Be the Cure for COVID-19?

    There has not been an awful lot to laugh about these past few months, and yet, where would we be without the occasional moments of levity about the predicaments of pandemic?
    In this episode of the "What Manners Most" podcast, Thomas interviews standup comic and audience warmup man Tom Kelly. A comedian who cut his teeth on shows such as The View and Good Morning America, Kelly reflects on the outlook for a career—and a culture—presently without comedy clubs or studio audiences. What does the future hold for comedians--and for comedy in general, and how will laughter continue to carry us through these unsettling and unprecedented times?

Manners for the new times

Such engaging and fun way to talk about manners without being stuffy or outdated. It’s manners for the modern world we’re living now. Great chats!

My favorite podcast

A good podcaster comes across as knowledgeable and insightful. But the mark of an exceptional podcaster, in my book, is their ability to consistently make *their guests* shine in the same way. Thomas consistently does this by asking great questions and drawing out pearls of wisdom from his guests by listening exceptionally well. He makes it look easy but you can tell there is a high level of preparation and discipline that goes into every 'cast. It's what makes his interviews and his interview style so captivating!
