Our Editor's Take

Unpacking The Toolbox is the ultimate rewatch podcast for fans of the TV show Scandal. Best friends and costars Guillermo Diaz and Katie Lowes want to rewatch the show with their much-loved Scandal community. Scandal fans know the hosting duo as "Huckleberry Quinn," as they played Quinn and Huck on the ABC drama. The duo answers questions from super fans known as the "Gladiators." Plus, they read out top tweets about the show, so listeners should expect a lot of laughter!

Scandal, ABC's legal and political drama, is a thrilling tale of deception. Olivia Pope, played by Kerry Washington, is the head of a crisis management company. Her firm works to protect the secrets of essential people within American politics. Tony Goldwyn plays the president. Viewers may know him for starring in the Ghost and Nixon films. The show follows the relationship between Olivia and the president and the workings of the White House. The Unpacking The Toolbox podcast goes through each episode of the program. Cast cohost Huck plays a former secret agent who swears to protect Olivia and her team. Quinn joins Olivia's firm with a new identity following the murder of her boyfriend. The pair share stories from their time on the show and their favorite memories on set.

Not only will listeners hear from Huckleberry Quinn, but they'll also hear from guests. The first podcast episode invites the show's creator, Shonda Rhimes, to start the series. Shonda discusses the pilot episode, favorite storylines, and how it all began. The iconic Kerry Washington joins for a special episode. They discuss her casting story and her relationships on the show. Huck also praises her for her respect for background actors on set.

Unpacking The Toolbox is an entertaining Scandal rewatch podcast. For anyone new to the show, it's a great companion when watching for the first time. The show ran from 2012 to 2018, with seven scandalous seasons to enjoy. Listening to the two stars chatting about the show feels like being among friends. There's lots of laughter and funny stories to enjoy.
