Ep 35 Branch Closing

Welcome to the People Person's Paper Podcast! Each week, hosts Hilton Price and Brian Sittler and their guests chronologically examine every episode of the hit NBC sitcom The Office, analyzing storylines and character development, and identifying that special something that made this seemingly unremarkable remake of a BBC TV show into a cultural phenomenon.

The downsizing is here on Episode 35! This week, Brian and Hilton welcome comedian Terrell Norton to the show to check out episode 7 of Season 3, Branch Closing! Jan’s going to be driving a lot as she goes to Scranton, Stamford, and back to Scranton as Dunder Mifflin is rocked by a wave of downsizing and the sudden exit of regional manager Josh Porter! As the turnabout plays out, Michael Scott is desperate to save his branch. Thank God he has Dwight ready to help! Meanwhile, the rest of the Scranton branch is dealing with the bad news, then good news, and it gives everyone a chance to shine! Stamford gets its fair share of fallout, and it could mean even more explosive situations when the two branches merge next week. Ready for our take? Check it out at the link below!
