Episode 15 of the Hunger Games Fireside Chat podcast aired live on Monday, July 11, at 10pm ET/7pm PT! Unable to contain our excitement over the upcoming premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, we decided to bring you a night of festivities celebrating both The Hunger Games AND Harry Potter!
This week, our panel of experts included some of our fabulous friends from Down with the Capitol and The Hunger Games Trilogy Fansite. We were also joined by Sara Gundell of The Hunger Games Examiner, Natalie Zutter of Crushable, Kimberly Denny-Ryder of Reflections of a Book Addict, and Ariel Birdoff, children’s publishing expert, lead singer of Madam Pince and the Librarians, and blogger extraordinaire.
According to the owls and mockingjays, this is what went down:
– We started out by announcing the winner of our Panem anthem contest (note: this link will take you to our old promo at Picktainment).
– Jon Rosenthal, the Headmaster of the NYC Harry Potter Meet-up (the largest Harry Potter meet-up in the world!), told us about everything that’s going on in the Harry Potter universe in anticipation of the final film.
– We discussed: If the Hunger Gamescharacters were students at Hogwarts…which Houses would they be in!?
– We engaged in: A very quick and dirty Battle of the Epilogues.
– And we asked: What is The Potter Games, anyway!? (As it turns out, most of us are involved!)
