Episode 29 of Hunger Games Fireside Chat will air live on Monday, October 17, at 10pm ET/7pm PT! This week, our panel of experts will include some of our fabulous friends from Down with the Capitol. We’ll also be joined by Sam of District Tribute, Kait of Victor’s Village, Natalie of Crushable, Ariel of Nerdy, Wordy, and Almost Thirty, and Courtney of F*** Yeah District 12!.
– We will begin by combing through the rumor mill and chatting about trailer theories, the Josh Hutcherson interview delays, and Glen Hansard’s possible contribution to the Hunger Games soundtrack
– We’ll weigh in on everything we’ve seen from TheCapitol.PN thus far (the seals, DIPs, etc.) and talk about the site’s effectiveness as a marketing tool (in light of Lionsgate’s recent marketing-related news)
– We’ll discuss transportation in Panem, from District 6 and District 3’s roles to the amazing hovercraft manual that @Sarah_Songbird1 put together
– The episode will conclude with another round of Pick a Page and an INCREDIBLE surprise that you won’t want to miss — trust us!
Okay, since the show’s over, we can go ahead and tell you what the surprise was! Back in July, we held a songwriting contest challenging fans to write lyrics for the new Panem national anthem — the anthem that would be adopted after the fall of Snow’s regime. After a massive online vote, “Bright Panem” by Alex Pipes was declared the winner. As part of Alex’s prize package, we promised to set her anthem to original music, and thanks to Sam Cushion, it’s finally been done!
