Episode 21 of the Hunger Games Fireside Chat podcast aired LIVE Monday, August 22, 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 Kate of The Hunger Games Trilogy Fansite, Sara of The Hunger Games Examiner, Sam of District Tribute and Panem Radio, Natalie of Crushable, and Ariel of Madam Pince and the Librarians and Nerdy, Wordy, and Almost Thirty.
– The Hunger Games Examiner, Sara Gundell, kicked off the show for us by sharing some incredibly exciting news: She wrote a comic book biography of Suzanne Collins!
– Gwen, founder of The Hunger Games Collab on YouTube, told us all about the channel, those involved, and what we can expect in the future.
– We also discussed the latest movie-related news: Is filming coming to a close? What do we think about the Peacekeeper uniforms (as seen in the still of Gale at the Reaping)? T. Bone Burnett said Jennifer Lawrence’s recording of “Rue’s Lullaby” will be “coming out soon” — what does this mean!?
– To celebrate the one-year anniversary of the publication of Mockingjay, we spent the rest of the show sharing our Mockingjay midnight release experiences and more!
