EP. 100.5 — A Look Back on Diwali

Happy Thanksgiving! Our “Office Ladies” team is enjoying a break with our families but before we left, Jenna and Angela share a “Diwali” deleted scene that reveals another Andy nickname and we hear a clip from Mindy Kaling! 

While you enjoy the holiday, you can relisten to this amazing interview with the boss lady triple threat herself, Mindy Kaling! Mindy walks us through how she came to work on “The Office”, what it was like for her to be able to pitch and write “Diwali”, and explains why the show cast her actual parents in this episode. Then Jenna and Angela dig even deeper into this episode covering Kevin’s sweaty feet, and what went into filming and costuming the Diwali festivities. Finally, we connect with Jaysha Patel, who played one of Mindy’s sisters and get her memories of filming this episode, along with why sushi and bottle service don’t mix, and we end with a great BFF catch.
