Awesome Etiquette the Podcast!

I was listening to the Knitmore Girls a podcast that is, unsurprisingly, about crafting. Jasmin happened to mention that she was listening to a new podcast called Awesome Etiquette. I was intrigued by this and decided to give it a listen.
The hosts, Lizzie Post and Daniel Post Senning, are fantastic! They’re both passionate about lubricating your way through interesting social situations. We’ve all had that experience of a circumstance where there is not a clear way forward. We’ve either managed to put ourselves there, or have been placed there by another person. Whether it is your own fault or the doing of another, Lizzie and Daniel have a solution. They’re associated with the Emily Post Institute. I will confess that I had not heard anything about Emily Post’s life or career. This is quite embarrassing considering she is a famous author and I have a degree in English Literature. I guess we can’t read them all, right?
A quick synopsis of Emily Post, she was born in 1872 as Emily Price in Baltimore, Maryland. She was educated at home as a young child and attended Miss Graham’s finishing school when her family moved to New York. Emily was married to Edwin Main Post and had two sons. She started writing when her sons were old enough to start boarding school, but after her divorce. Emily Post became a name synonymous with good etiquette as her first book, Etiquette in Society, in Business, in Politics, and at Home, became a best seller. She continued to write and founded the Emily Post institute in 1946. The institute is carried on today by her descendants.
One of the most vital things I have drawn from this podcast is, you cannot control the actions of others. They never explicitly say it and always give advice on how to handle the actions of others, but I find myself thinking if everyone were just a little more accepting it would make life so much easier. When you have to tell that person they have BO, when someone is unintentionally hurting your feelings or dealing with well-meaning strangers; it all goes a little smoother when the other party is accepting.
I definitely suggest you check it out because it is A) awesome and B) seriously informative and entertaining! If there is one thing we could all use more of, it is common courtesy.
