#118 Fireside Chat: Is Peeta Man Enough? Monday 12 August, 2013
“Is Peeta Man Enough?”

Episode 118 of Hunger Games Fireside Chat will air live this Monday, August 12, at 10pm ET/7pm PT! This week, our panel of experts will include Kait from Victor’s Village, Ariel of Nerdy, Wordy, and Over Thirty, and Jessi of TheFandom.net.
We enjoyed our time off last week, but we’re excited to be back! Here’s what we have planned for our first episode of August:
– We’ll talk about one of the Catching Fire book-to-film changes that was recently revealed by Entertainment Weekly: Peeta will be able to swim. While Peeta knowing how to swim isn’t really a big deal, many fans are upset about a comment Francis Lawrence made to EW when discussing this and other changes: “We made some changes to Peeta’s narrative,” says Francis Lawrence. “We manned him up a little.” Why do Lawrence and those involved in the film franchise think Peeta needs to be “manned up”? How do we feel about this? How do YOU feel about this? Let us know!
– We’ll also weigh in on the news that Coldplay will be releasing the first song from the Catching Fire soundtrack! The song is called “Atlas,” and while you’ll have to wait until August 26 to listen to it, you can read the lyrics here.
*FYI: There will be no show on August 19 or September 2. After Labor Day, you can expect us to resume our regular “every Monday” schedule.*
