By BBC Radio 4

Brighten your week with the latest BBC Radio 4 comedy.



Katy Brand and Katherine Parkinson write and star in a new comedy about the world of influencing, where they play Ruth and Carla – two wannabe stars of the online business world. They are bound together by a carefully controlled image that can lead to lucrative product placements and well-paid endorsements - but only if the PR is played just right. And that’s a problem because, behind the scenes, things are not always as harmonious as they seem. Episode 4: Biscuits Ruth and Carla discover a new blog called Daughters of Influencers, written by two teenage girls detailing their grievances with their toxic influencer mothers. It can’t possibly be about them... Carla – Katy Brand Ruth – Katherine Parkinson Written by Katy Brand and Katherine Parkinson Producer: Liz Anstee A CPL production for BBC Radio 4
