Etiquette 101: Your Guide to Tipping in 50 Countries
Tipping rules vary by country, by region, and by scenario—here's what you need to know about tipping on your travels.
When Tipping Was Considered Deeply Un-American
Imported from Europe, the custom of leaving gratuities began spreading in the U.S. post-Civil War. It was loathed as a master-serf custom that degraded America's democratic, anti-aristocratic ethic.

Excellent Topics and Discussions!
Hey! Do you have two minutes? Do you like podcasts? Do you like learning about things? Do you sometimes discuss things with people? If you answered yes to any of those questions, check out this podcast! It's A Thousand Things to Talk About, produced by some very lovely people! Every weekday there are two minute nibbles of topics to discuss, like Selling Art, Habits, and (my favorite) Coming Out. Specifically, is it a minority group's responsibility to be visible, if they safely can? I love that episode!
I definitely recommend checking out this podcast. The production is great and the topics are varied and well-researched. Great job!

great for the commute
When I drop my husband off at work in the mornings we often queue up a few podcasts for the drive and this one is always in the mix. Short enough that you don't zone out first thing in the morning, and long enough that it kick starts much needed brain activity. The occasional longer episodes are great too, though we generally save those for the weekend chore time. The one side effect that the podcast has though is that is has double my must-read book lists, almost every book references sounds so interesting. I need them all!
