Aaron Goldberg, Author of "Buying Disney's World"

What do a high-stakes poker game, clandestine meetings, shell companies, and an ex-CIA agent have in common? They all contributed to the future of Walt Disney World. We brought Aaron Goldberg, author of "Buying Disney's World" on today's show, to take us down the path that Walt has set in motion decades ago. From gathering his team to setting his sights on the perfect area in Florida for his new park, Aaron paints a wonderfully engaging landscape, detailing just what it took to bring a Disney park to Florida. Plus, Jason gets way too happy reporting on the petty fight between Bob and Bob.
