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.
This week we’re breaking down “Broke”. The Michael Scott Paper Company is struggling to stay in business after Ryan made a serious accounting error. Meanwhile, Dunder Mifflin has taken a hit from all the customers they lost to the Michael Scott Paper Company, so with the help of Jim, Dunder Mifflin decides to buy out the Michael Scott Paper Company even though they have no idea that’s exactly what Michael, Pam and Ryan want. This is the first “Office” episode directed by Steve Carell. The ladies help a fan clarify what Michael yells when pranking Ryan, Jenna simplifies the difference between fixed-costs vs variable-costs and Angela shares a deleted scene about Charles Miner that will make you gasp! So enjoy this episode because well, well, well, how the turn tables...
A Look Back on Diwali
Happy Thanksgiving! Our “Office Ladies” team is enjoying a break with our families but before we left, Jenna and Angela share a “Diwali” deleted scene that reveals another Andy nickname and we hear a clip from Mindy Kaling!
While you enjoy the holiday, you can relisten to this amazing interview with the boss lady triple threat herself, Mindy Kaling! Mindy walks us through how she came to work on “The Office”, what it was like for her to be able to pitch and write “Diwali”, and explains why the show cast her actual parents in this episode. Then Jenna and Angela dig even deeper into this episode covering Kevin's sweaty feet, and what went into filming and costuming the Diwali festivities. Finally, we connect with Jaysha Patel, who played one of Mindy's sisters and get her memories of filming this episode, along with why sushi and bottle service don't mix, and we end with a great BFF catch.

By the way, the new receptionist is Erin Hannon, played by Ellie Kemper! Angela points out that Jenna has been a Fun/Fast Fact Queen well before “Office Ladies”, Jenna reveals that while shooting this episode paparazzi snuck onto “The Office” set and both ladies have something to say about a couple pairs of sunglasses.

This week we’re breaking down “Dream Team”! Michael puts together his dream team for the Michael Scott Paper Company which consists of Vikram, Pam and… Ryan.

Angela breaks down the OG Dream Team from the 1992 Men’s Olympics Basketball team, Jenna is bringing back the flower lapel and the ladies discuss Vikram's famous quote, “Confidence. It’s the food of the wise man, but the liquor of the fool” and why it’s so mysterious. So make lots of french toast, perfect your best soccer moves and enjoy this episode.
This week we’re breaking down “Two Weeks”. Michael puts in his two weeks notice at Dunder Mifflin and when he learns finding a new job is hard, he decides to start the Michael Scott Paper Company. The ladies celebrate Michael’s new endeavor by trying his drink of choice, Scotch and Splenda. Is it drinkable?! Angela points out a deleted scene that reveals why Michael has a big tub of cheeseballs, Jenna describes how the monster sounds were made for Monster.com and the ladies also drink to how this episode was unbeknownst to them, Pam’s last day as a receptionist. So if you dare, put in your two weeks notice, make yourself a Scotch and Splenda and enjoy this episode!

I “hardcore love” it!
I’ve listened since the beginning (they just recently celebrated 100 episodes). It brightens my day and I often find myself smiling and laughing along with these ladies while listening. I love their behind the scenes info and stories and you can tell they have a genuine friendship. I’d recommend Office Ladies to any and all fans of The Office!
