Episode 31 of Hunger Games Fireside Chat will air live on Tuesday, November 1, at 10pm ET/7pm PT! (We skipped Monday due to Halloween.) This week, our panel of experts will include some of our fabulous friends from Down with the Capitol. We’ll also be joined by Crystal of Mockingjay.net and FictionalFood.net, Sam of District Tribute, Kait of Victor’s Village, Ariel of Nerdy, Wordy, and Almost Thirty, Natalie of Crushable, Alyssa of F*** Yeah District 9, and Jake of The Vivacity Blog.
– We’ll kick off the show with a rundown of the latest book and movie-related news, including Panem October and TheCapitol.PN updates (with the help of @AmyBeaudine, District 8 Recruiter for TheCapitol.PN!).
– We’ll interview Kristen Zimmer, creator of the Hunger Games Electronica Project, about her music and recent collaboration with Sam Cushion: REDUX: Music of Panem Remixed.
– With the help of our panelists, we’ll take a look at several examples of “real life” Hunger Games from throughout history — including Ancient Rome’s gladiatorial games, Tlatchtli, and an old Fox reality show — and remind ourselves that humanity’s fascination with violence and suffering is nothing new.
– We’ll conclude with Pick a Page.
