Emma has a LOT on her mind. Good thing she has a podcast to talk about it all. Appropriately named, anything really does go on this podcast. Thoughts, conversations, and advice on topics from relationships and dealing with failure, to the trials and tribulations of being a cat mom, and ridiculous stories with friends we can all relate to. It’s raw, intimate, and nothing is off limits (seriously, Anything Goes). It may be serious, it’ll mostly be funny, and it’ll always be entertaining. New episodes every Thursday.
Here's the Latest Episode from Anything Goes with Emma Chamberlain:
Emma’s been off her phone for a while and feeling GREAT. Why it’s really helped with her anxiety and how it may help us all, too. Plus, insights into a new project (or two!) she’s working on, thoughts on TikTok potentially shutting down, how to deal with cheaters in relationships, and the three celebrities she’d want to be stranded on an island with. And is the blonde hair here to stay??
Anything really does go on this episode. Emma chats about everything from starting to surf, to taking a break from makeup, to why her jeans keep ripping. Plus, she answers a ton of questions like how much she’d let her future kids use the internet, all the bands and songs that would make up her life soundtrack (hint: there’s a lot), the things she loves most about her fans, and so much more.
As we grow up, our relationships with adults and “authority figures” can be complicated, intimidating, and confusing. In this episode, Emma discusses the types of relationships we have with the adults in our lives, how to effectively communicate with them, how to build strong and trusting relationships with parents, and everything in between.
Emma goes deep this week on the notion of becoming “irrelevant” on the internet. Navigating “cancel culture”, challenges of growing up in front of millions, a lack of privacy and extra scrutiny, and less wiggle room to make normal teenage mistakes. Why clickbait content is less important than creating something you’re passionate about, and how living life based off views and likes can really be a strain on mental health.
Emma is switching it up this week and answering questions from guys about girls. Everything you’ve ever wanted to know. Topics like how to recognize signs that a girl is into you, how to approach someone you like, great gift and date ideas, and jealousy in relationships. Plus, teaching guys all about periods, and answering the question that’s puzzled guys forever: why do girls all go to the bathroom together?
Emma is back with more life advice for everyone. Topics like getting over an ex and how to deal with a friend starting to date them, thoughts on diets and the best ways to stay healthy, keeping a good relationship with your parents, especially if they are divorced, overcoming image issues and gaining self-confidence, and so much more.
Breaking out of your shell and gaining confidence comes in different ways at different times for us all. Emma opens up about struggles with confidence growing up, and then eventually breaking out of her shell in various ways over the past few years, especially through YouTube. Plus, questions on things like making friends, talking with people you’re interested in, and how to be unapologetically yourself despite what others may think.
Moving out is a big step in anyone’s life, but those responsibilities are such a drag. Emma dishes on the expectations vs. the realities of moving out and living on your own. From moving around to different locations, to doing all of your own cooking and cleaning, to meeting new people and missing your family. And when could it be time to move in with a significant other? Oh, and that leaky faucet isn’t going to fix itself.
It’s a rant session. Emma is fired up about all of her pet peeves in this episode. From food chewing and getting it caught in the corner of your mouth (gross), to lying, judging and humble brags. Plus, maybe it’s time to get rid of that v-neck shirt, and she’s definitely judging that coffee order. And it’s finally been settled: which side of the roll should the toilet paper fall?
Most people (secretly) love their birthday. Emma is not one of those people. On this episode she dives into everything birthday related. Past birthday traumas, the 3 types of people on their birthday, awkwardness of giving and receiving gifts, anxiety about getting older, and everything in between. Does anybody actually like when people sing “happy birthday” to them?
Living in Los Angeles can be... interesting. Most people outside the city think of beautiful beaches and lavish celebrity mansions in the hills. And they do exist. But for those that live in the city, your view of it can be a bit different. Emma's lived in LA for a few years now, and has had her fare share of experiences. Everything from crazy people at fast food restaurants to what it's really like at those big parties. And she's STILL not over what someone did in her bathroom...

Most people want to get married and have kids some day because… it’s what you’re “supposed” to do… but is that right for everyone? Emma dives deep on it, from getting married, to divorce, to having kids and everything in between. What are the impending challenges of finding someone you’re supposed to spend the rest of your life with and raising children? How should you treat your kids when it comes to parties? And be honest, are babies actually cute?
We’ve all had that feeling of being burnt out: your brain is fried, you’re unmotivated, and you’re physically and mentally exhausted. Emma’s been there too. Whether it’s from school, YouTube, friendships, or life in general. She gets deep and personal on how to deal with burnout of all kinds, and how you can use it to come back better than ever.
Emotions, we all have them, and they can be a really tricky thing to navigate. Emma gets sensitive sometimes, as we all do, and she talks through it on this episode like a therapy session. From getting over people who wrong you, to worrying about relationships, letting yourself be vulnerable and opening up, why crying is actually good for us, and a lot more. Plus, Frankie the cat makes a (very short) cameo appearance on the podcast.
One of Emma’s favorite things to do is give advice, so she’s dedicating the full episode to it based off your questions.

Emma is dishing on everything, nothing is off limits.
Maybe not all of us have cheered, but we’ve all been passionate about something, and had a competitive drive to push ourselves to be the best. But how much is too much?

Emma talks through her cheerleading career, the ups and the downs, the lessons learned, and how it’s helped shape her. Plus, she finally gets started on Tiger King and is completely hooked like the rest of us!
Gut feelings, instincts, that voice in the back of your head — we all have them. Sometimes they’re so strong they can’t be ignored. Should I be doing something different? Why don’t I fully trust this? Should this person be in my life? Emma dives deep into her intuitions, from important life decisions, to personal relationships, and everything in between. What to do with those intuitions, and when to trust them?
Social media. It’s in all of our lives. Most of the time, it can be used for good to connect us with each other. But sometimes, it can be a place of negativity and false realities that can really affect our wellbeing. Emma talks through her experiences with the ups and downs of social, dealing with things like body image issues, having unflattering photos of you spread around, and negative comments. She gives advice on how to handle it all, plus ways to practice healthy habits on social, and why she’s refusing to edit her photos on Instagram.
High school. For some it can be the best years of our lives, for others...not so much. Emma dishes on the entire high school experience and shares all of her embarrassing stories, from awkward interactions with boys, attempting to be athletic, and a self-inflicted hickey?!? Plus, she answers fan questions on high school and gives relationship advice to a few very interesting situations. And she may have been convinced to get a tattoo??
The city of angels. Either you love it or you hate it. Sometimes, both. Emma opens up about the pros and cons of the city - from living there, to the people you meet, to all of the things going on.
