An Instagram post gets an unexpected boost. A TikTok catches in the algorithm.


Sometimes that's all it takes to launch someone into internet fame. But then what?


This blue up is a new podcast documentary that reveals how social media


start and is made. It's a different kind of fame. That's not always as glamorous as it looks.


From Spotify and the Ring or Podcast Network, I'm Alyssa Bereznek.


You can listen to this blue up on Spotify or wherever you get your podcasts.


All right. Welcome back, everybody. You know what? Sometimes you got to bring people back in the pot.


Who are your faves? Could you haven't talked to them in a while?


And the world loves them and when you hear from them,


so I'm like, well, they need to come in my pot so we can talk.


Is that the expression come on the pot?


Come on the pot. Yeah, although that can have some horrible double and triple on top of it.


I love this. That's great. So I mean, she's just beloved by America,


but I love her because she's just so genuine, so funny and she's so smart.


She does everything and she's doing everything right now, which is crazy.


And we'll talk about that. I want to know what's happening.


But you know from Blackish, from girlfriend, she's award winning,


she's producing, she's acting out there, but she's got a podcast, guys.


She's doing this, what we're doing now. And it's really beautiful.


I think it's the word I want to use. It's so well produced and it's just a beautiful show.


It's called I Am America.


And they're really best way to say inspiring stories from everyday people.
