Teresa & Travis McElroy

This wife and husband duo have a great podcast called Shmanners. It is about extraordinary etiquette for ordinary occasions. They first talk about the history of a topic and then answer questions sent in by their listeners. Sometimes they also do biographies. They have a nice episode where they have a conversation with their LGBTQ+ friends on dating. If you’re queer and nervous about dating this is a great episode to listen to.
