NEW YORK CITY– Podcast industry leader Stitcher is launching “Office Ladies,” the ultimate podcast for nostalgic fans of NBC’s “The Office,” with two of the original stars of the beloved comedy series and real life best friends: Jenna Fischer (Pam Beesly) and Angela Kinsey (Angela Martin).
“Office Ladies” premieres Oct. 16 on Stitcher’s comedy network, Earwolf, home to popular podcasts including “Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend,” “Getting Curious with Jonathan Van Ness” “How Did This Get Made?” and “Comedy Bang! Bang!”
Each week, Fischer and Kinsey break down an episode of “The Office” and give exclusive behind-the-scenes stories that only two people who were there would know. While watching the show that made them best friends, they will reminisce, share memories and answer questions from fans.
“Office Ladies” continues Earwolf’s long history of partnering with celebrity talent and giving stars like Fischer and Kinsey a platform to reach new, highly engaged audiences, said Colin Anderson, vice president of comedy for Earwolf.
“What continues to bring audiences to Stitcher is a focus on stories listeners will love in every show, connecting through emotion – whether that’s making listeners laugh, think or empathize,” said Anderson. “We’re proud of producing shows grounded in real people, sharing real thoughts and experiences.”
“I’m excited to be working with my best friend Angela Kinsey. So many memories are flooding in as we go back and watch the episodes – many of which I haven’t seen since they aired,” said Fischer.” 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. 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. It’s a lot of fun.”
“This show combines two of my favorite things: ‘The Office’ and getting to hang out with my real life BFF, Jenna Fischer! ‘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,” said Kinsey. “There’ll be lots of behind-the-scenes stories and lots of us just being BFFs. So come on! What are you waiting for? Snuggle up next to me and Jenna on the sofa and let’s rewatch ‘The Office’ together!”
The show will be available for listeners on Stitcher, Apple Podcasts, Spotify and anywhere podcasts are available.
