In Episode 89 of Fireside Chat, we start out by discussing The Hunt, a new Hunger Games-style reality show that has been ordered by the CW. EW has summarized the show as follows: "In 'The Hunt,' 12 teams of two are dropped into the wilderness without food, water or shelter. They must compete in a game where they'll rely on their physicality, survival skills and hunting skills to endure the harsh conditions and 'capture' one another." What do you think? Is this a bad idea? Are you horrified and/or disturbed? Or do you think it sounds like a fun concept? We then do a round of Catching Fire Pick a Page, so get your books ready! We spend the rest of the show pulling topics out of our grab bag. Update: All the topics we pulled out of our grab bag are listed below!
Did Katniss and Peeta name their children in a Harry Potter manner after their dead loved ones? (from Matilda)
Would you rather face off against Cato or wrestle Thresh? (from McKenna K.)
Crackpot Theory: Johanna and Finnick were dating before the Quarter Quell. (from McKenna K.)
Welcome, welcome to the first show of the post-movie era! We kick off the show by looking at the massive success of The Hunger Games at the box office this weekend. It broke quite a few records, and we think it's safe to say that Catching Fire is pretty much a "definite go" now. Representatives from fan sites and other experts join us to fully discuss and analyze the movie, from the changes, additions, and acting to the music and cinematography. We also briefly discuss our midnight showing experiences, since some of us unfortunately ended up with audiences that -- while comprised of people who obviously loved the books -- seemed to not "get" or fully understand The Hunger Games on a deeper level.
Tonight I ask you to mark your calendar for the 46th Annual Walk for Hunger!

Who knew that one in every five children in America were going hungry? I know, I didn't. One in every six Americans are also going hungry. Next time you are in a room look around you, somewhere in that room a person will go to bed without food. 49 million Americans, including over 15 million children are struggling to eat, every day in America. We are the wealthiest nation in the world and yet millions of Americans go hungry.
The hunger in America is not caused by lack of food, but by scarcity of income. We throw out billions of tons of food a year, instead of feeding the hungry, because we are afraid of law suits. Nearly half of all the people on the SNAP program are children. Can you feed a child for $70 a month?
Mississippi currently has the highest percentage of population going without food at more than 20% of its population struggling to eat. Food insecure children are 90% more likely to suffer health problems through their entire life. 4 out of 5 teacher's state children in their classroom come to school hungry. Without school programs all of these children would suffer. Without your help the face of hunger will continue to grow.
In this episode Maria, Erin, and Micaela will be discussing the differences between the following books and movies: The Hunger Games, Harry Potter, and Divergent. We will share our opinions and talk about the rivarly between books and their coutnerpart movies. Which do you prefer?

The 8/5/11 issue, which hit newstands this Friday, features the first official in-character photos of Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth. We also discuss the rest of the latest book- and movie-related news, including Slate's article naming Suzanne Collins one of the "Most Innovative and Practical Thinkers of 2011." We end by exploring the Crackpot Theories that we didn't get to last week and embarrassing ourselves yet again with another round of Cave, Marry, Kill. Oh yeah, and three more lucky listeners have a chance to win mini-posters!
