#69 Fireside Chat: Parade of Districts Monday 30 July, 2012
“Parade of Districts”
Did you miss Episode 69 LIVE last night? Never fear! You can listen to the show recorded by clicking HERE or, you know, you could just use the embedded player below. Whatever floats your boat!
Episode 69 of Hunger Games Fireside Chat will air live this Monday, July 30, at 10pm ET/7pm PT! This week, our panel of experts will include Aldrin and Jessica from Down with the Capitol, Crystal from Mockingjay.net and FictionalFood.net, Sam Cushion, Kait from Victor’s Village, and Courtney from Welcome to District 12!
So, what do we have planned for our last episode of July?
– We’ll begin the show by discussing and analyzing the first official map of Panem, which was released through the Facebook game The Hunger Games Adventures. If you haven’t seen the map yet, check it out at the bottom of this post (you can click on the image for a high-res version)! Let us know in the comments what you think of the map. Is it what you expected? Any surprises? What questions does it raise for you?
As you’ll see, only the locations for the Capitol and District 12 are labeled on this version of the map. Inside the game, however, you can also unlock the locations for Districts 2 and 11. Click here to see a screenshot of the map that includes those locations. FYI: The actual populated district locations are where you see the symbols/emblems on the map. The rest of the land in each district is wild and uninhabited.
New districts will be unlocked in the coming months, so be sure to sign up to play The Hunger Games Adventures if you haven’t already.
– In honor and in celebration of the London 2012 Summer Olympics, which officially opened this past Friday, we’ll challenge ourselves and our panelists to assign Olympic events to our favorite Hunger Games characters. Feel free to leave a comment and let us know which events YOU think the characters would compete in! We’ll also talk a bit about how The Hunger Games has boosted interest in archery at the Olympics.
