    Our host is joined by his friends and family for the first time ever. Patrick's wife Shayna Hackett (the odds on favorite), joins college buddy John Kozempel, friend and runDisney enthusiast Jeremie DeWitt, with returning awesome WIGS member Courtney Bruch on Season 6 Episode 13 (recorded 9/12/2018).  Our panel tackles the end of "a bugs land" making way for a new MARVEL land at Disney California Adventure.  Has our panel ever been to the Swan and Dolphin? Will they when the new tower premieres at the resort? We follow up on some Kingdom Hearts news to go along side our panel's opinions on a possible Disney Channel shared cinematic universe.  One lucky panelist gets to talk about Disney On Ice for the first time in Around The Hub's history.  Our final two contestants design their best Marvel attraction for DCA. Join an exciting conversation on this week's friends and family showdown.



    Hosted by Patrick Hackett, Around the Hub is a show loosely themed after ESPN's Around the Horn, where four panelists battle it out for points in the sport of competitive Disney banter. We bring on 4 panelists, give them a bunch of news topics from around the Disney company, and judge them on whose opinions are best. Points are awarded for well thought out ideas and deducted at the whim of the host. Around The Hub has run for 5 seasons and Season 6 premiered live during our Toys for Tots marathon.



    We will be featuring panelists from around the WDWNT team talking about all the latest Disney news.



    Around the Hub is broadcast live every two weeks at WDWNTunes.com, and then released on the Around the Hub podcast feed sometime afterward.
