Welcome to New to the Table, a series in which we welcome our newest Betches podcast hosts to the team and do what any kind, supportive relatives would do to the new person at a family dinner: grill the fuck out of them.
This isn’t your normal, boring Q&A. We’re getting personal (and probably too close for comfort) with our newest podcast hosts, asking them the questions that really matter, like what their last Google search was and what they’d do if they won the lottery. (Hint: It better involve front row seats to Taylor Swift’s Eras tour for the entire Betches staff and also maybe paying my monthly rent… thanks.)
This week, meet Emma Willmann, the host of the Betches Media weekly podcast Ask Men Anything. There’s one question that has stumped our universe for centuries: Why do men? Emma is on a quest to find out the answer. Each week, she is inviting some of the funniest and most interesting men she knows into the studio and pulling from the Ask Men Anything inbox to ask your biggest, weirdest, and most pressing questions of earth’s most mysterious beings.
Ok, let’s get started. If you could delete one social media platform forever, which one would it be?
I would delete TikTok because the algorithm is TOO good! I feel like they know me better than I know myself. Deleting TikTok would be the only way for me to not spend time on it; I have no TikTok balance or control!
Also, keeping up with what’s cool and trending on TikTok is a full-time job. What’s the worst fashion trend you’ve ever participated in?
Relatable. What’s the most ridiculous thing you’ve ever bought while drunk online shopping?
An inversion table for back pain! Totally forgot about it then it arrived and I had this bizarre looking torture device in my studio apartment for way too long. ALSO, one time I was drunk and went online and bought the domain name www.emmawillmann.com, and was like, “I’ll buy it for like 10 years.” THEN, I forgot about it. Later on, I went to go buy the domain and they (godaddy.com) said someone had already bought it so I’d have to negotiate with “them” when I remembered, “oh it was me, I already bought it it was just drunk at 3am on a Saturday.”
Honestly, both sound like money well spent. What’s the most embarrassing thing you’ve ever had to explain to a doctor?
One time I went to the dermatologist and was just going to get some routine botox. I was doing laundry and had no underwear on, but figured, dermatologist, whatever, no problem. When I got in they said that it was time to do the annual skin check up and to just leave my bottom underwear on, so when the nurse left I tried to make shift underwear out of my bra. When the doctor came in to do the skin check I had to explain why I was wearing my bra as bottom underwear. Just a mess.
No no no no no…. What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten?
HMMMMMMM, cow brains! I ate it on a date once because I was trying to symbolize I’m open minded, but that was a tough one.
I guess I’d eat cow brains for Ryan Gosling. What’s the most ridiculous thing you’ve ever done to impress someone you had a crush on?
What’s the most useless talent you have?
I can tell what country an amateur porn video was shot in in an astoundingly short amount of time. One grunt or sound, and I can call it!
Oh, you should be on America’s Got Talent with that! What’s the most embarrassing thing you’ve ever Googled?
Anything related to IBS: “Does ADHD affect IBS and depression and is that the reason I have commitment issues?” Also, one time I was hungry and was going to type in a porn but I merged the porn I was searching for with the food I was searching for and literally googled “fuck my wife protein smoothie.”
Stopppppp. What’s your biggest drunk texting mistake?
Once my sister texted me about my niece and nephew, saying, “Heads up the kids still believe in SANTA” but I’m dyslexic and thought she wrote that the kids still believed in SATAN, and wrote back, “Honestly, I get it. I do too, sometimes. That’s why the light has to stomp out the dark”
Last, but not least. Why should we listen to your podcast?
It’s funny, interesting, informative, and ridiculous — you’ll learn and be entertained — plus lots of the guys are very cute. So if you’re watching, lots of eye candy!!!!!
New episodes of Ask Men Anything come out every Tuesday and can be found on Apple, Spotify, or wherever you listen to podcasts.
