The ‘Office Ladies’ Podcast Is Out, and Fans Already Can’t Wait for the Scott’s Tots Episode
The classic television show The Office has been off the air for six years, but fans still can’t get enough of the show — from exciting behind-the-scenes stories to seeing the series’ stars together.
The brand new podcast “Office Ladies” combines both of those, as The Office stars Jenna Fischer and Angela Kinsey reunite to discuss episodes of the show. Fans are incredibly excited about the podcast, and the chance to relive all of their favorite episodes of the iconic show.
Keep reading to learn why The Office remains so popular, how the podcast will be structured, and when fans will get to hear about the all-time favorite episode, “Scott’s Tots.”
When did ‘The Office’ debut on TV?
In 2005, network television was changed forever when The Office premiered. The show followed the day to day lives of office employees at the fictional Dunder Mifflin Paper Company.
The Office featured talents like Steve Carell, Jenna Fischer, John Krasinski, Rainn Wilson, and B.J. Novak and over the years, welcomed a wide variety of incredible guest stars like Ed Helm and James Spader.
The format of the show was really what made it so unique — the employees would talk directly in many scenes, with other scenes filmed with a single-camera setup, in order to look like a documentary.
At first, The Office wasn’t a smash hit. But as time went on, ratings went up and it became a complete sensation, with thousands of people tuning in to watch their favorite characters.
A few of the awards that The Office won during the course of its six-year run include four Primetime Emmy Awards, two Screen Actors Guild Awards, and a Golden Globe Award for Steve Carell.
When the show finally went off the air in 2013, fans were devastated — but the good news is, the actors who appeared on The Office have an overwhelming fondness for the series and love chatting about their time on the show with fans.
What is the ‘Office Ladies’ podcast about?
Jenna Fischer and Angela Kinsey are two stars of the show who have remained close since The Office went off the air. Recently, Fischer and Kinsey decided to combine their love for each other with fans’ desire to hear more about their time on The Office. They decided to work together in order to create “Office Ladies,” a podcast in which they would discuss individual episodes of the show, combined with behind-the-scenes stories and their own personal memories of working on set.
The initial teaser episode of “Office Ladies” was released on September 17th, and quickly became the number one podcast on the Apple charts that very same day. Fischer admitted that they were “taken aback” by the overwhelmingly positive response, but that she and Kinsey are grateful and excited for the opportunity.
Fischer said that they will be discussing each episode, in order, so fans could likely expect to hear 201 episodes of the podcast in total, and that they will be contacting other stars of the show to stop by and chat with them.
When will Jenna Fischer and Angela Kinsey talk about ‘Scott’s Tots’?
One particular episode of The Office that remains perennially popular is one called “Scott’s Tots.” The episode debuted as the twelfth one in the sixth season and focuses on Michael Scott’s ten-year-old promise to pay for the college tuition of an entire third-grade class. Scott, realizing he doesn’t have the funds to cover his promise, must go and tell the class, now in high school, that he will not be covering their college expenses.
The episode became an instant classic, and both critics and fans hailed it as one of the best in the series thus far. Therefore, fans can’t wait to hear Fischer and Kinsey discuss the episode on their podcast. It is even possible that they could bring in Steve Carell to talk about the episode and his recollections of working on it.
Either way, since they are discussing each episode in order, and there is one new episode each week, they won’t get to ‘Scott’s Tots’ for some time yet.
