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.
A Look Back on Grief Counseling
As Jenna and Angela prepare for Season 5 of The Office, Office Ladies takes a look back at Grief Counseling. This episode starts off with some real life bird trouble, and we get some special audio treats from Mindy Kaling and the episode writer herself, Jen Celotta. Then we dig into chip rankings, we clear up a fan theory around Ed Truck’s death, and we find out who’s been moving the conference table. Finally, we get a writer’s room deep dive on Dwight’s absorbed twin speech, and Jenna learns to not touch melons in France. Amen!

Goodbye Toby, Part 2
This week we finish breaking down Goodbye Toby. During Toby’s goodbye party, Michael tries to get closer to Holly but finds himself being pulled back to Jan after discovering some big news that involves a pro tennis player. Meanwhile, an unexpected proposal happens. Jenna and Angela give Toby a “Show Bible Goodbye”, Angela shares how she almost didn’t make it to set for a very important scene and a couple of Michael’s parody songs are brought to life! This episode is so special you won’t want to say goodbye to it. Toby on the other hand... I mean, who does he think he is?
Parody songs performed by Joshua Snyder and Jordan Duffy.

The theme is “What keeps you motivated and moving?” Jenna and Angela break down their friendship, what led them to make this podcast and how Office Ladies comes together each week. This episode is jammed packed with daily rituals that help get the ladies through their week, more Office casting stories and even a best friends quiz! Kick your week off right with this Monday Motivation episode.
Goodbye Toby, Part 1
Today we’re breaking down Goodbye Toby. To kick off this two part episode, Paul Lieberstein sent in audio clips to talk about what it was like to write himself off the show and introduce Holly Flax, played by Amy Ryan. When Toby has his last day at Dunder Mifflin, Michael insists on throwing him a huge going away party. Angela Martin scoffs at the idea, so Phyllis steps in. While breaking down Pratt Institute, Jenna ends up quoting her own book, The Actor’s Life: A Survival Guide. Creed chimes in about his famous “quabity assuance” scene and Angela learns the difference between “hot to trot” and “fired up”. This episode is cruisin’ for a bruisin’, so listen up!

Today we’re breaking down Job Fair. Michael, Pam, Oscar and Darryl set up a booth at Valley View High School’s Job Fair in hopes of finding a new intern. Jim, Andy and Kevin golf with a potential client. Jenna and Angela speculate what a crossover episode between The Office and Monk would have been like, a fan gives a theory on why Pam skipped volleyball during PE and the ladies reveal which Office castmember is really good at golf. We’d never tell this to its face, but this is a wonderful and gifted episode.

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.
Feels like home
Seriously. Please do more. And please dont be PC. (We know which season we talking about)
Incredible and so potential
Despite that I am a big fan of The Office, this podcast is so interesting and it’s terrific to listen those behind the scenes stories. I want this podcast go up until the Finale. Cheers, guys!
