Will Bailey has found a job outside of the executive branch.

Joshua Malina, who played Bailey on four seasons of The West Wing, is cohosting a podcast that will go through the series episode-by-episode. Along with Song Exploder host/producer Hrishikesh Hirway, Malina takes on The West Wing Weekly to revisit his former show. And it’s not a joke.

“It’s real. It’s here. I wasn’t trolling,” Malina tweeted Tuesday afternoon.

The West Wing is my favorite show, and Josh is one of my favorite actors and people in general, so I’m really excited to get into it,” Hirway said on the teaser episode, “Cold Open.”
