Around the Hub is a game show based on ESPN’s Around the Horn. Four contestants from around the WDWNT Network of Podcasts match wits in a game of competitive banter. Points are awarded for good arguments and points may be deducted if a podcaster loses their train of thought or says something the host does not agree with. There are 3 rounds of play, starting off with the Rope Drop (which covers the biggest news stories of the week from the entire Walt Disney Company) and ending with the Face-Off between the last two podcasters standing. At the end of each round the podcaster with the lowest point total is eliminated. The winner of each episode gets a thirty second Meet ‘N’ Greet to discuss anything from the World of Disney that is on their minds.
Host Patrick Hackett and his panel break down the upcoming Lone Ranger movie as well as react to Starbucks opening on Main Street USA! An in-depth discussion is held on merchandising. Finally, we talk John Carter. That’s right John Carter talk on Around the Hub. Please join the fantastic panel of Rob Page, Eric Lancy, Justin Heyman, and Ben Harris for this tremendously fun episode!
