If you have Wifi and a Netflix subscription, you've probably watched The Office in its entirety once or twice or... like, nine times. You know, like the rest of us.
Well, before the show is pulled from Netflix (which, yes, is unfortunately happening) there's so much new The Office content in the works that will continue to fuel your addiction — even after the show is gone from Netflix.
Not only is there a documentary in the works about The Office ahead of its 15th anniversary (yes, a documentary about a show, which was a show about a documentary), but the new podcast Office Ladies was just released yesterday, and you're going to want to stream it immediately.
The Office Ladies podcast gives you the inside look you've always dreamed of.
Created by former cast members and current best friends Jenna Fischer (Pam) and Angela Kinsey (Angela), the show gives fans first-hand recounts of some of the funniest and most important moments that happened behind the scenes of the show.
The idea for the podcast started when Angela was going through an old tote she had of memorabilia she collected from her time filming The Office. She wanted to rewatch the show ahead of the anniversary and share her fun memories with the fans of the show.
After telling her best friend about the idea, the two of them decided that the best way to do this was to create a podcast.
Originally, Angela and Jenna were going to pick a few of their favorite episodes to relive, but then decided that there were too many to pick from — so they decided to do all of them, in order.
"We’ll keep going as long as people are listening," Jenna told The New York Times. While the pair haven't confirmed that they'll make it all the way to the end of the series, since they're waiting to see how the podcast performs, they've confirmed that they'll at least do the first two seasons.
The first episode is already available.
The first episode was released by Earwolf on Wednesday, Oct. 16, and the pair already have the first five episodes filmed.
The pair each prep the episodes in their own ways. Jenna usually rewatches the episode, taking notes and outlining the plot, looking online for other deleted scenes and fun memories to pull from.
Angela reaches out to other cast members to get their own take on the episodes, and according to Jenna she's become an expert at finding weird things located in the background.
For example, if you've ever wanted to know how Dwight ended up in the box in the episode "The Alliance," Jenna and Angela plan to answer that question for you.
In addition to their own colorful commentary and memories about the episodes, the pair plans to bring other cast members, script writers, directors, and other people who contributed to the show in any capacity to call in as guests and answer questions for the fans. They're also including interesting fun facts about the episode they're recapping, and revealing which parts were improvised.
If you want to listen to Office Ladies, you can find the first episode anywhere you get your podcasts.
