Emma Smith is a resident of London, England, but perhaps she is better known as the ASMR artist, WhispersRed.
Emma posted her first ASMR video on YouTube in July, 2013. It was 1 minute and 23 seconds long, and filmed on her iPad.
Now, about 2.5 years later, Emma has posted over 190 productions of increasing video and audio quality and has reached over 126,000 followers.
Whenever I see someone listing out their favorite ASMR artists online, her name is usually at the top of their lists. Emma is also often featured, quoted, or mentioned in articles, radio programs, and TV news stories and programs about ASMR.
In my interview with Emma she shares what drives her dedication to the ASMR community, how she has changed over the past 10 years, her tips for new ASMR artists, her challenges with creating her new website, her curiosities about the potential involvement of the vagus nerve in ASMR, and more.
