Mindy Kaling, writer for The Office and star of her own new show, The Mindy Project, was interviewed on Fresh Air this week. When asked about her how she got the job as a writer on The Office Mindy said her career got started at PS122 with her hit play, Matt & Ben.

I was doing a play called Matt and Ben, that I wrote with my best friend in New York City. And it had been in the New York Fringe Festival, then was transferred to off-off broadway to PS122 which is this incredible theater in the East Village

We don’t like to define ourselves by our proximity to Broadway but we appreciate the kind words and the interview is indeed a good listen. I’ve rarely heard Fresh Air host Terry Gross being so candid. In one section of the interview Terry and Mindy bonded over the passing of their mothers and later Mindy mocked Terry’s backhanded bragging about shopping for petite clothes.
