That's what she said!

How does a podcast about The Office handle itself during a week in which NBC reruns an episode?

Well, That's What She Said tries to keep on rolling, despite the fact that we already covered "The Gay Witch Hunt" when it premiered in late September.

This week, Matt and I talk about future storylines for the show, one of which includes the Hindu holiday Diwali, which is the focus of the next upcoming episode. (And how did I embarrass myself at an Indian grocery while asking the grumpy clerk behind the counter about this holiday?)

Do the writers who also play characters on the show (B.J. Novak, Mindy Kaling) give themselves more material when they write an episode? Does Matt hate Scrubs? Why do I like salt and vinegar potato chips? And what is "googy googy"? Matt also includes the week's latest "Office"-related news, tracks cast members' blogs, and reads listener e-mails (one of which might be mocking our emotional sensitivities).

Any time you want it, Episode #5.5 is available for download, either from the That's What She Said home page or iTunes.) Constructive criticism and feedback is always much appreciated, so if you're suitably inspired, please chime in with some e-mail. Thanks for listening!
