Exchange Exemplar: "Good Manners For Nice People"

Steven Larsen, CC BY 3.0, https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?curid=9642238
An example of what NOT to do.

Amy Alkon wants people to behave better, but she serves up the information with plenty of humor. 

Alkon provides advice through columns ("The Advice Goddess") and a weekly radio show. 

She is also the author of a couple of books, including Good Manners for Nice People (Who Sometimes Say F*ck).  She visited the Exchange three years ago to talk about her efforts, and we replay that interview here.
