426 - Emma Willmann (Live @ SXSW)

Emma Willmann is a New York killer comic, with a big online presence and a completely magnetic angle on gender and sexuality. We talk here about her unique origins with a schoolteacher who let her get up and perform if she managed to focus throughout the class; as well as covering hyperfocus, ADHD and stopping taking the pills, and the comfort in relating to finding a process.  

All of this plus the systems she’s created for coping with her busy brain, an obsession with comedy book-learning, and some really insider stuff on social media processes - you love to hear it!
