Perhaps you've heard Billie Eilish gush about her undying love for The Office once, or 50 times. Well, the singer is putting her quarantine time to good use by helping the cast of the beloved sitcom do a deep, deep dive into the history of the show on an upcoming 12-part podcast called An Oral History of The Office.

According to EW, the show to be hosted by show star Brian Baumgartner (aka Kevin Malone), will drop on July 14 on Spotify with the first three episodes, followed by a new episode each Tuesday after. The series will go back to the very beginning, when co-creator Ben Silverman met with Office creator Ricky Gervais at a Starbucks in SoHo to talk about adapting the mockumentary sitcom for American audiences.

The podcast will reportedly dive into the casting, iconic storylines and big moments, with cast and crew members including Steve Carrell (Michael Scott), John Krasinski (Jim Halpert), Rainn Wilson (Dwight Schrute), Jenna Fischer (Pam Beesly), Angela Kinsey (Angela Martin) and more participating.

A description on Spotify says it will pull back "the curtain on what went into creating this unstoppable force in American popular culture and why it continues to resonate with new audiences today"; a spokesperson for Eilish confirmed that she was interviewed for the series.

Eilish has never been shy about her love for the series, which came to a peak last year when Wilson visited her home to play a round of Office trivia with the singer. She also managed to slip some quotes from the show into her song "my strange addiction"
