The Office co-stars and best friends, Jenna Fischer and Angela Kinsey, are doing the ultimate The Office re-watch podcast for you. Each week Jenna and Angela will break down an episode of The Office and give exclusive behind the scene stories that only two people who were there, can tell you.
Did I Stutter?
This week we’re breaking down Did I Stutter? When Stanley snaps at Michael, Michael must stand up for himself as Stanley's manager. Meanwhile Dwight buys Andy’s car, and Pam has to forgo contact lenses and wear her backup glasses to work. Angela rocks her original Did I Stutter? shooting draft, Jenna does a deep dive on Mad Libs and the ladies reveal The Office writing staff’s mantra: “small, real, relatable”. This is a wonderful episode that definitely doesn’t sound like noise coming out of an ugly scientist.
This week we’re breaking down Night Out. In pursuit of finding the love of his life, Michael clup-hops with Ryan and Dwight in New York City. Meanwhile, the rest of the Dunder Mifflin crew gets locked in the parking lot. Terry Carnation, host of the podcast Dark Air, reads today’s episode summary and we hear from Noel Petok on what it was like to play Ryan’s friend, Troy. Angela gives us the history of the slow clap, Kate Flannery sends in an audio clip about what it was like getting hit in the head with that football and Jenna gives great advice on how to avoid a UTI. So pour yourself a glass of wine and sink into a hot bath because you deserve this episode.

This week we’re breaking down Chair Model. After a disastrous dinner party, Michael is single and finds himself falling in love with a chair model from an office supply catalog. Meanwhile Kevin and Andy fight to get their parking spaces back from a construction project by confronting the Five Families. We hear from Paul Faust who actually played himself as one of the heads of the Five Families. Jenna spots a sparkling Michael accessory, Creed Bratton gives theories on why the character Creed was trying to score three office chairs, and Angela reveals something pretty special about the chair she’s been using to record Office Ladies. You totally should listen to this episode, no shortn’t about it.

Happy Spring Break and A Look Back on Booze Cruise with Greg Daniels
It’s Spring Break and what better way to enjoy the week off than with Booze Cruise!?

This episode is jam-packed with info and fun insights, so wait to do your snorkel shots until the episode is over y'all!
This week we’re breaking down Dinner Party! Michael finally outsmarts Jim and Pam forcing them to come over to his condo for dinner. Steve Carell reads this week’s summary, and we hear from Melora Hardin, John Krasinski, Rainn Wilson, Ed Helms, Beth Grant and director Paul Feig on what it was like to be a part of this infamous episode. The ladies also discuss the writer’s strike, which scene was the hardest to get through without laughing and a gassy car incident. So put that Osso Buco in the oven, turn off your tiny plasma TV and curl up on your bed bench to enjoy the behind-the-scenes magic of this amazingly cringey episode.
This week we’re breaking down The Deposition. When Jan sues Dunder Mifflin, she brings in Michael as a witness which to no surprise, doesn’t go well. Back at the office, Kelly smack talks Pam when Jim loses to Darryl at ping pong. Angela shares how her kitchen table has been turned into a ping pong table, Jenna looks up the difference between “trash talk” and “smack talk” in the Merriam Webster dictionary and the ladies discuss a missed storyline simply labeled “Dwight gets stuck in the wall”. So grab your paddle Seemiller style ‘cause we’re serving up all the spin serves with this episode.
