Description

With the success of his hit podcast, An Oral History of The Office, podcast host extraordinaire Brian Baumgartner (AKA Kevin Malone) is taking you even deeper inside the show, releasing his full-length, in-depth conversations with the cast and crew of The Office. Every week, Brian will sit down with one of his old pals and coworkers to talk about their best job ever: The Office. They’ll laugh, cry, and crack plenty of inappropriate jokes as they discuss the inner workings of the show, their favorite moments on set, never-before-told stories and secrets, and what makes the show even more popular today. Fans will get to be the third wheel with their favorite stars as they learn everything they never wanted to know, and then some. If you loved An Oral History of The Office, you’ll double love The Office Deep Dive, featuring full-strength interviews with Steve Carell, John Krasinski, Rainn Wilson, Jenna Fischer, Greg Daniels, and more!

Brian welcomes legendary casting director Allison Jones into the studio to chat about how bad stand-up comedians are at auditions (God bless them), the time she talked back to a studio executive, and the shame she feels after passing up Kristen Wiig for a reading.

If The Office were a puppy, director Ken Kwapis would be “the country vet that birthed it” (according to Greg Daniels, at least). Ken speaks on the decisions he made that let the audience feel like they were catching the action on screen by accident, how no one was allowed on set while filming the first few episodes - not even hair and make-up - and the moment he knew that Phyllis just belonged in a paper company.
