Enjoy the quick and practical guide to manners
It's great to have a quick and practical guide to manners - great for a time-limited world that could stand to be a bit more polite.
The podcast concept is great. Hopefully future podcasts will include more references regarding the source(s) of these manners (i.e. by what or whose standard are they considered manners, or are they just Mr. Manners' opinions). Mr. Manners' counterpart 'Grammar Girl' does this well, referencing where she found information such as style guides etc)
Grammar girl is that you at the end? Are you building an empire? Can Mr. Manners spell? Take me I a ready grammar girl. I a holding 4,000 doors open for you. I am spelling your name in acetate.
