I’m going to be honest: I’ve only seen a few episodes of The Office. There, I said it.
I never got into it the way everyone else did. But one thing that can be said about the show is that it was a cultural phenomenon in both the UK and US.
That inspired me to check out the podcast, The Office Deep Dive with Brian Baumgartner. And I love it! Beyond playing Kevin on the show, Brian is also the veteran podcast host of An Oral History of The Office, which also happens to be about… you guessed it, The Office.
The new podcast is a deeper look into the show. Brian is joined by cast, crew, and friends, and each episode includes a full-length interview that shares inner workings of the show, behind-the-scenes stories, and more of the magic that made you fall in love with it in the first place. You will even find some new “Office mates” from the UK version, like Ricky Gervais, joining as guests.
What I love about the show is its in-depth nature. Each conversation is a joy to listen to. You will find yourself laughing and even learning new trivia that you can dazzle your friends with. This podcast could easily turn me into a new fan of the show.
