Jenna Fischer and Angela Kinsey are the hosts of the rewatch podcast: Office Ladies

Adam Hendershott

Jenna Fischer and Angela Kinsey will be forever linked together – thanks to one show: The Office.

The show began in 2005 as an American reboot of the BBC series of the same name, created by Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant. But in its nine seasons, it became something else, entirely: one of the most popular sitcoms of all time.

It's an inspiration for dozens of shows like it and a launch pad for some of the greatest writers and performers in comedy today: Greg Daniels, Larry Wilmore, Mindy Kailing, John Krasinski, Michael Schur.

Jenna Fischer played Pam, the receptionist turned office admin who eventually falls in love with John Kraciznski's Jim. Angela Kinsey played Angela Martin – the steely, judgmental accountant with a thing for cats.

Angela and Jenna were strangers when the show started, but soon formed a friendship that has lasted long after the show wrapped.

In 2019, they started a rewatch podcast: Office Ladies. Each episode corresponds with a different episode of the show. Angela and Jenna talk about the show, but also their friendship, their co-workers and their families.
