Under the Influence with Jo Piazza


Critic Rating

Under the Influence is a deep dive into social media, a place haunted by aspirational marketing where it feels like every other person is a social media influencer trying to sell you something, all while posed in perfect houses that never seem to get messy. And behind this airbrushed perfection is money, so much money. Billions and billions of dollars. Journalist and mom Jo Piazza looks at how we got here, what it all means and how the commodification of every single aspect of our lives is driving everyone (but mostly women and mothers) a little insane.

"Binge-worthy, entertaining, and educational, Piazza’s storytelling is stellar. If you’re looking for your next podcast to listen to while pushing a stroller or watching your kids on the playground, Under the Influence will do the job."

"In a funny and fascinating show, Piazza digs into who is really benefitting from these sponcon deals and dips her own toe into mommy influencing to see if she can achieve a #blessed life."
