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.
Stress Relief, Pt 2
This week we finish breaking down “Stress Relief”. In a continued effort to relieve the office’s stress, Michael demands a comedic roast of himself; meanwhile Pam, Jim and Andy finish watching the very saucy film, “Mrs. Albert Hannaday”, starring Jack Black, Cloris Leachman and Jessica Alba. Jenna does a deep dive on Cloris Leachman, the ladies share stories of acting on a sitcom vs a single camera comedy, and Angela reveals that Angela Martin’s comedic inspiration is Jeff Foxworthy. Then “The Office” writer’s assistant, Nate Federman, sends in a clip sharing his cameo experience as the young man Jack Black catches passionately kissing Cloris Leachman. So sit back, relax and get ready to scream, “Boom Roasted”!

Stress Relief Pt 1
This week we’re breaking down “Stress Relief”! To kick off this two-part episode, the ladies break down one of the most famous cold opens of “The Office”, featuring clips from Rainn Wilson, Oscar Nuñez, Brian Baumgartner and cinematographer, Randall Einhorn. When Dwight stages a fake fire, Stanley has a heart attack and Michael goes into overdrive to protect Stanley. The ladies reveal how much went into this episode that premiered right after SuperBowl XLIII, which includes Angela walking us through everything that went behind “Save Bandit!”. Jenna points out the use of a montage that was unusual for the show and we rock out to the Bee Gee's “Stayin' Alive”, which giving CPR to its beat actually saves lives. So keep away from Michael so you can be stress free and relaxed while you listen to this very epic episode.
Prince Family Paper
This week we’re breaking down Prince Family Paper! When David Wallace asks Michael and Dwight to go undercover and scout out a family-owned paper business, Michael’s conscience gets to him. Meanwhile back in the office, everyone debates whether Hillary Swank is hot or not. (The ladies may get on a soapbox or two for this one.) Jenna does a deep dive on Hillary Swank, the ladies delve into all the creative production work that went behind building and shooting the Prince Family Paper company, and Angela shares a funny blooper where a cast member got bits of smoked almonds spit on them. So congratulate yourself for getting up and putting on clothes today, we think that’s hot and totally deserving of this fun episode.
A Look Back on Conflict Resolution
This week we’re taking a look back on Conflict Resolution. This is the episode where Oscar and Angela feud over the babies playing jazz poster, Jenna shares some amazing insights on the talking heads, both ladies talk about magazine photoshoots with their cats, and we discover whose names are on the plaques hung all around Dunder Mifflin. The ladies also wonder if ‘save the dates’ are worth the trouble, and then we get into Michael’s conflict resolution style, along with some major Pam sass. Finally, we talk about all the hilarious pranks Jim has played on Dwight, and discuss that office group photo. This episode is definitely a “win, win, win”!
This week we’re breaking down The Duel! When Michael tells Andy that Angela and Dwight are having an affair, Andy and Dwight challenge each other to a duel for Angela’s hand! Jenna does a deep dive on duels, Office writer Ryan Koh calls in to share a behind-the-scenes racing accident, and Angela breaks down all the fakey items used to create the duel scene. There’s also talk of a casting sheet filled with cat headshots! And Jenna may have worn something in real life that Meredith wore in this episode… So enjoy The Duel! And remember, always keep an eye out for a Prius slowly trying to crush you.
This week we're breaking down Moroccan Christmas! When Meredith gets too drunk at Phyllis’ Moroccan themed Christmas party and lights her own hair on fire, Michael forces an intervention. Phyllis also reveals to the entire office that Angela is having an affair with Dwight. Well, everyone in the office except Andy… The ladies talk about how this was a big prop week for prop master, Phil Shea, Jenna finds something special while cleaning out her desk and Angela shares one of the best Michael Scott alts that didn’t make it into the show. We also hear clips from Stephen Saux on what it was like to test out the fakey Dwight desk used in the cold open, and Jen Celotta shares a very funny Paul Liberstein story. So get ready for a big shot of Michael Scott and enjoy this episode!
