Missing your co-workers? Or even the normalcy of going in to the office? Maybe a workplace comedy could cheer you up (or remind you why working from home has its perks)!
When my friend and former co-worker Grace and I first met, online, on the job, we didn’t know much about each other. But the moment we discovered our mutual love of Parks and Recreation (and The Office, too, of course), we knew our friendship was meant to be. Clearly, we got each other. We were each other’s kind of people.
As we chat this week, you’ll get to hear me try to convince Grace to branch out to other workplace comedies. And we’ll debate what defines a workplace comedy in the first place. What IS Brooklyn Nine-Nine? Is it a workplace comedy? A cop show? Who knows? Well, maybe we do. You’ll have to listen to find out.
This episode is part of a special summer series, by the way, where I’m sharing some of my very favorite episodes of The Couch with you.
