Episode 19 of the Hunger Games Fireside Chat podcast aired LIVE tonight (Monday), August 8, at 10pm ET/7pm PT! This week, as always, our panel of experts included some of our fabulous friends from Down with the Capitol and The Hob. We were also joined by Crystal of Mockingjay.net and FictionalFood.net, Ariel of Madam Pince and the Librarians and Nerdy, Wordy, and Almost Thirty, Panem mapmaker and noted fan fiction author V. Arrow, Courtney of F*ck Yeah District 12! and Welcome to District 12, Kim of Reflections of a Book Addict, and Kait of Victor’s Village.

Tonight’s topics included:
– Steven Soderbergh as the film’s second unit director
– Billboard’s news on the multiple score and soundtrack albums
– The Catching Fire release date, which was just announced today: November 22, 2013!
– The newest stills of Jennifer and Josh as Katniss and Peeta (WHY ISN’T THE BACKPACK ORANGE? Oh, wait, it is…), as well as the recently circulated photo of some of the Capitol extras in costume
– Crackpot Theories: Was Prim’s name planted in the Reaping by rebels who knew that Katniss would volunteer to take her place? Was Peeta’s name a plant as well?

We also gave away our last official mini-poster! Congratulations, Madison!
