Ep 56 Local Ad

We're harmonizing for Episode 56! This week, Brian and Hilton welcome Alyssa Steen back to the show to talk about Episode 6 (or whatever) of Season 4, Local Ad! Dunder Mifflin Scranton is getting its own television commercial, and the staff get to be in it! That means Michael is taking the lead, and no one, I mean no one, better derail his creative ideas, including members of the office or the outside team hired specifically to design the commercial. When all of that inevitably occurs, will Michael handle it with grace, or put everything on the line to prove he's creative. (Hint: It's the latter...) It's a packed episode, complete with a soundtrack (one we're partial to, for sure!) Listen to our take on the Soundstooth App or wherever you listen to podcasts!
