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.
Beyond the Hub returns as host Patrick Hackett sits down with David Smith. David has a wealth of experience and knowledge that he shares with the WDWNT listeners and readers as a former editor in chief of the Magazine and recurring guest on the podcast. Patrick and David discuss Hollywood Studios, a ton of Star Wars, Princesses, My Little Pony (WHAT!?), and Dr. Who (DOUBLE WHAT!?) amongst other fun Disney topics. Come check us out as we relive “WDWNT: Who Wants to Be a Podcaster” as well as have some friendly banter.
