Are you getting in your own way? You might not even realise you are. I didn’t, but by the time I hit my late 30s, the way I thought and lived was so life-limiting that I’d backed myself into a corner and I was horribly lost; mentally, physically and emotionally.
I was the Queen of self-sabotage and the only way out was to admit I didn’t have all the answers, wipe my slate clean and look at the world through other people’s eyes. And that’s how The Emma Guns Show was born.
Each week I chat to guests from different backgrounds, expertise and industries to find out how they overcame their insecurities, tapped into their potential and started to live authentically. They generously share their success stories without sugar-coating the failures so you can become the best version of yourself.

    Sam McKnight | A Career in Hair

    Sam McKnight | A Career in Hair

    In this episode, Emma chats to celebrity hairdresser Sam McKnight about his career creating some of the most iconic looks in fashion history and why, as he launches an extension to his haircare range Hair by Sam McKnight, he's pausing to reflect on what he has learned from decades working with visionaries and trailblazers.
    During our conversation we discuss the age of the Supermodel, watching punk emerge on the King's Road in the 1970s from the top deck of the number 22 bus, why lockdown offered an opportunity to pause and reconsider, which he didn't know he needed, and much more...
    Sam's products are available Space NK now and direct from Sam's website sammcknight.com

    The Infertility Episode | Big Fat Negative's Emma Haslett and Gabby Griffith

    The Infertility Episode | Big Fat Negative's Emma Haslett and Gabby Griffith

    In this episode, Emma chats to journalists, authors and podcasters Emma Haslett and Gabriella Griffith about all things infertility. Having been on their own fertility 'journeys' Emma and Gabby decided to create a safe space where Old Wives' Tales and, let's just be honest about this, all the nonsense around what you should and shouldn't do when you're trying to conceive (TTC) was set straight with expert insights from doctors and specialists.
    Struggling to conceive can feel very lonely and isolating and Emma and Gabby wanted to make sure that no one had to navigate the challenges of infertility on their own. So, they started the Big Fat Negative Podcast and wrote the Big Fat Negative book.
    Big Fat Negative Podcast
    By Emma and Gabby's book here.

Too many Ads and interruptions

Far too many ads, and the host has an annoying tendency to try and finish people’s sentences for them. Used to really enjoy it, but sadly not the same any more.
