For Part 1 of a two-part series on momfluencers, Emily is joined by Sara Petersen, author of the Harper’s Bazaar article, "Momfluencer Content Enrages Me. Why Can't I Look Away?" Emily and Sara talk about the unattainable "authenticity" of the most elite momfluencers, reveal which ones really got in their heads, and discuss the term "hate follow."
