Incredible!I loved this podcast so much and it couldn’t be any more perfect at explaining why The Office is loved by so many!

A perfect tribute to a perfect showI can’t emphasize enough how much I loved this podcast. When I heard that Brian was making it, I was concerned it would be competing with Office Ladies (which I also really love) and wasn’t sure what to expect. This podcast is totally different from Office Ladies. It’s emotional, informative, and truly magical. I loved the format, the interviews, the many voices that made up this gem of a show. I listened to all 12 episodes in one day, and you should too..Score: 5/5

BrilliantExcellent and professional format and editing. Intelligently laid out with in depth and intelligent conversations involving an amazing cross section of individuals involved with the creation and success of The Office..Score: 5/5

A must listen for all Office fans.If you’re bored with the ladies of the office answering “wAS ________ sCriPteD??!” over & over on their podcast then listen to this. Brian is the greatest host and has interviewed with everyone involved. Not just reading text messages from them..Score: 5/5

Pleasantly surprised. Loved itI’m a huge fan and f The Office and have listened to other podcasts from cast members but had very little expectations this would be much better. I put it on while doing chores and was very surprised how interesting the story was and how compelling it was hearing from all the producers and people who made the show possible. Definitely look forward to the rest of the episodes. Thanks for making this!!.Score: 5/5

So Good!I honestly didn’t think I needed to listen to another podcast because I love the Office Ladies. BUT I love the office and it was different so I figured might as well check it out. So glad I did. It’s sooooo good!.Score: 5/5

Great!Once I got past the novelty of hearing Brian’s real voice (and he has a great voice) I found this podcast to be truly binge worthy. Lots of great info and insights and the last episode was especially good..Score: 5/5

Thumbs up, way upIf you love The Office, you’ll love this podcast..Score: 5/5

Like a documentaryDon’t want to commit to the 4 years it’ll take for Jenna and Angela to get through all the episodes on “The Office Ladies”? Settle into this more traditional documentary format that features interviews with creator, cast and crew. Less chatty, no annoying tangents, meatier. (I do enjoy “The Office Ladies,” but it's a commitment!).Score: 5/5

Simply, amazing.I will relisten to this podcast like I rewatch The Office. On loop. How the heck did you manage to make me cry? How did you do it? And how to microphones work?.Score: 5/5

AMAZINGIncredibly well-produced and includes interviews with all the writers, producers, and actors you’d ever want to hear from. It’s so heartwarming to hear all of them gush over this show!! Makes you love The Office even more..Score: 5/5

Awesome!I love this! I finished the series on Spotify. I totally recommend listening to this and to Office Ladies because while this goes through the big picture, they go into every episode. Listening to both is a great experience..Score: 5/5

OMG PEOPLE!!!!!I’ve actually never listened to this podcast, but I am in love with the office so I was looking at reviews to see if it was worth listening to, and I saw a bunch of people were complaining about how it was only on Spotify and how they didn’t want to get Spotify and just gave up after that. I was actually shocked. I mean, god people, use some common sense! For those of you who say this podcasts is amazing but you don’t want to get Spotify, let me break it down for you. Spotify is completely free unless you want to get a premium subscription. No cost whatsoever. And you don’t need a premium subscription to listen to this podcast on Spotify, I checked. So grow a pair, stop complaining and download one app (COST FREE) to listen to this podcast. Also no this is not and add for Spotify.😂😂😂.Score: 3/5

Better than office ladies imoBrian does a phenomenal job and the quality of production and guest interviews puts this podcast above and beyond office ladies for me. Have Jenna and Angela talked to Steve Carell? I didn’t think so..Score: 5/5

It’s on Spotify- worth the listen!!Please take the time to listen on Spotify. This is SO GOOD! For The Office fans you won’t be disappointed, and yes you should listen to this + Office Ladies. This is like an audio documentary..Score: 5/5

Love hearing them together againThis podcast is so well done and has so much behind the scenes info. Brian is an awesome host and I find myself getting emotional hearing the actors reminiscing about my favorite show. I’m really looking forward to hearing Steve Carell and the rest of the cast 🤍.Score: 5/5

Just get Spotify, people.. Worth it.How is this podcast not #1? It’s so freakin good and that’s what she (me) said. It’s beautifully crafted and does The Office so much justice. I’ve enjoyed listening every week. I’ve had Spotify for years and their platform for music and podcasts is far superior. You won’t be disappointed once you get adjusted to the interface. Which isn’t to say it’s complicated, it just takes a minute for anyone to get in the groove of a new system. You’ll thank me later..Score: 5/5

Wow!Brian Baumgartner has a voice made for podcasts! I’m really looking forward to more episodes. I’ll never stop watching The Office. Every time I watch it, I laugh at something new. I love that the whole cast still works together on their independent projects..Score: 5/5

Great narration and editingWe’ve become an Office family. My 13 and 15 yo also love listening to this podcast. They know all the trivia after watching the series on Netflix for the 10th time, so they appreciate all the behind the scenes info. My kids got me hooked on the show. Out of all the cast, we would have chosen Brian to narrate hands down..Score: 5/5

More of a question than a reviewThe episode was great. But there's only ONE episode as far as i can tell. Can ANYONE tell me what happened. Why only one episode? Or is there something wrong with my device and downloading capabilities?? Was there meant to be only ONE episode? Thank you. In advance..Score: 5/5

Brian nails it, but on Spotify!For those looking for a deep dive into the behind the scenes arena of the creation and production of The Office, check this one out. Office Ladies is fine enough, but I found this to be much more informative and insightful than the weekly rehash of episodes I’ve already watched several times myself. A must listen for any Office fan..Score: 5/5

It is so interesting and touching and I don’t know If I’m just too emotional, but I felt tears welting multiple times while listening. Not sad just thankful to get to hear the people who helped make this show I love. I was a bit hesitant to listen at first, but it was great. Also any office ladies fans, it’s so different from the office ladies but still so good. And if you don’t like office ladies, like I said it’s still very different so please give it a chance. I know people still complain about it being on Spotify but you can still listen for free, just with ads..Score: 5/5

WOW!!!An Oral History Of The Office was basically an audio documentary- and I love both podcasts and documentaries (mostly positive ones tho 😂)! Brian is so informative and fun in this podcast!

This isn’t about the podcastThere is a review on here which very rudely insults the fabulous miss Jenna Fischer and the dazzling miss Angela Kinsey. I think it is APPALLING that you would have the shriveled guts to say something like you did. These two women are lovely and their friendship is so fun to hear. If YOU in your confined think space have somehow come to the absolutely BAFFLING conclusion that they as PEOPLE are anything less than AMAZING. Then you can talk to me and every other respectful fan out there. with disgust, Me :).Score: 5/5

So well done👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻It’s edited, spoken and over all just soooo well done. I enjoyed listening to this episode and now all the others on Spotify. I LOVE that you mix in voices and use past scenes into the mix. I love the office and now get to listen to TWO podcast about it. 👏🏻.Score: 5/5

Love every minute of itYes it’s music (or words?) to The Office fans’ ears. But I’m sure to even casual watchers this would be a totally engaging listen. It’s so well produced, Brian Baungartner is a fabulous host, and hearing from not only the cast but all the players including creators, writers, casting directors, and studio people is so entertaining. The biggest takeaway though is just how much everyone involved loved being a part of this show. I can’t think of any job that changed my life in the same way. I really don’t want it to end. BTW to those griping about not having Spotify and “having to pay for it”—Spotify is free people!.Score: 5/5
