Meet the Hosts
Adam (Co-Founder, Host) is a law school graduate with a B.A. from Columbia University, District 13 campus. He fully admits he would have died the first day in the 74th Games. Inspired by his adorable friend Buttercup, he founded The Potter Games and Austen Twitter Project. He also watches far too many movies and usually has something quirky to say about them. A huge fan of dark chocolate, empowered heroines, and ridiculousness, it was natural for him to love The Hunger Games and subject himself to being one of the few guys in a female-dominated fandom. He loves traveling, sports, Irish music, and Delly Cartwright. Twitter | Tumblr

Savanna (Co-Founder, Former Host) was born and raised in the wilds south of District 11, spent several years learning how to recycle and eat organically in District 7, and now resides in an underground bunker in District 13. She has Master’s degrees in both French and education and hopes to eventually get a PhD in a related field (after taking a long, long break from school). She discovered The Hunger Games a few months before the release of Mockingjay in 2010, and her obsession has done nothing but grow since. Her favorite book in the series is Catching Fire, and her favorite characters are Cinna, Finnick, Peeta, and Haymitch. And Katniss, too, of course. Outside of the fandom, Savanna’s passions include 19th century literature, tragic musicals, the veggie burger at The Farm Café, and Oxford commas. She also likes movies and often writes about them at ScreenPicks. Twitter | Tumblr
