In our debut episode of Fireside Chat, we weighed in on the recent casting of Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss, Josh Hutcherson as Peeta, and Liam Hemsworth as Gale. In addition to our regular panel of fan site representatives, we were also joined by the eloquent and erudite Jennie Duke, an Australian literary critic, and Meg and V. Arrow, amateur cartographers who created this map of Panem.
