    305: More Cattle, Less Bull w/ Scott Foley

    305: More Cattle, Less Bull w/ Scott Foley

    Since Scott Foley, aka Jake Ballard, was notorious for fart noises in set, which spread through the rest of the Scandal cast, it’s only appropriate that this episode comes with a content warning: Gas. But when Scott, Katie and Guillermo aren’t discussing mouth noises, they deep dive into how Scott got cast on Scandal, then RE-CAST on Scandal, and the infamous basketball scene with President Fitz.

Reliving the Gladiator

I am totally reliving my Gladiator moments on Hulu and now listening to this magical and amazing podcast! I am totally hooked!!!🧰

AmeliaCat ,

Not always about Scandal

Katie and G have great chemistry and that can be fun when they are interviewing a fellow castmate but can be tedious when it’s just them talking about everything BUT Scandal. It’s getting less and less about the show and more about their friendship.

Love it!!!

I think the only thing better than having a dedicated “rewatch” Scandal podcast, is getting to know Katie and G. They are hilarious and the perfect pair to help us rewatch Scandal.
