As announced by CNN, Office Ladies will team co-stars and real-life besties Fischer (Pam Beesly) and Kinsey (Angela Martin) for what’s described as “the ultimate podcast for nostalgic fans.” Each week, the pair will break down an episode of the beloved NBC sitcom and spill the eggshell green teapot on stories from the set.
“As we close in on the 15th anniversary of the show, it seemed like a great time to share our stories and behind-the-scenes trivia with fans,” said Fischer in a statement. “Besides talking about The Office, you can also hear us chat a little about our lives, our Target runs together, our friendship through the years.” After all, there’s a lot of beauty in ordinary things. Isn’t that kind of the point?

Added Kinsey, “The Office was such an amazing chapter of our lives and it means so much to us that we get to share some of our memories of filming it with our audiences.”
Office Ladies launches on Stitcher’s Earwolf network on October 16th. You’ll be able to listen to it on Spotify, Apple, and anywhere you get your podcast content. (And hey, while you’re there, why not check out some of our Consequence of Sound Podcast Network shows too?)
The Office aired on NBC for nine seasons between 2005 and 2013. The series has maintained its immense popularity in the time since thanks to it’s availability on Netflix, where an estimated 52 billion minutes (!) of the show were streamed in 2018. Unfortunately, the streaming giant will have to give up the program in 2021 when NBCUniversal launches its competing service and reclaims one of its biggest hits. There have also been murmurs about a revival over the last few years, though original star Steve Carell has cautioned against the idea.
