The Office Deep Dive

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.
