Plus, we play a little round of In The Arena with Johanna and Katniss, so be sure to vote! Thanks for listening!

    Thank You for reading my e-mail! :D
    great podcast once again! When I read about Francis Lawrence being the director I was like “Is that a coincidence”, you know because of Jennifer LAWRENCE, but now I know that I was just being weird again…
    So, I don’t get why Missing Persons 1 & 2 is Hunger Games-y. I love OneRepublic too, but I just don’t see it. Can someone please explain?
    ♥♥♥ the show and keep on rebelling ;)

    Hey guys!
    My favorite book was probably The Hunger Games, but it’s a really hard choice because i love all of them. I REALLY don’t want Gary Ross to leave. With Gary Ross, we sort of knew what to expect of CF, we knew he would do as good a job as on THG. But, with a new director we have no idea if he’ll get it perfectly, even better than Gary Ross, or just completely kill the story and leave it to die. I think both elena and hurley gave great “in the arena” arguments, but i’ve got to vote for katniss. Sorry Elena! It’s nothing personal, you just always get the wrong side!
    (if it makes you feel better, i voted for Coin last time) as for Battle Royale, i couldn’t care less. I’m sure Suzanne Collins made up THG all by herself. The japanese can have thier Battle Royale while we have THG. way better than BR will ever be. Congrats on your 20th episode! This is a special moment :-) I’m pretty sure Johanna is pronounced as if you were saying Joe-Hannah.
    Thanks, keep up the good work and may the odds be ever in your favor,

    Im still listening to the podcast as i write this&i love love LOVE song! Anyways! I have seen I am Legend and it was good. I cant wait to see what Francis Lawrence has to give for the Hunger Games fans!! I think my facorite book from the trilogy is Catching Fire because we get to see more of Katniss’s everday life and how she interacts with gale more and her mother and most of all Peeta <3 (who,at times, remindes me of my boyfriend but mostly in the part with the snow. =^.^= ) I liked being able to get a feel for the other districts including my own (district 8). I think my least favorite book was Mockingjay because is was soooo friggen sad!!! :'( and from everyone at my school that i have talked to that has read all three, they agree that Mokingjay is just so sad. Some parts were scary too. Im 18 and i wasnt able to reread Mockingjay at night because it started to give me nightmares XD I love the podcast!&hurly ur so funny! I think ur the best! I love you guys and the music! <3

    Hey guys, love the podcast! While I am sad that Ross isn’t returning for Catching Fire, I’m also kinda glad. That shaking camera just drove me crazy, and when I had to leave the theater for a moment for more popcorn, I was really disoriented and nausea was settling in.

    Also, my favorite book in the trilogy is Catching Fire, though Hubger Games is really close. Even though there are some similarities, there are quiet a few differences. I enjoyed the begining of the rebellion, more insight on the Capitol(The way they just throw up so they can eat more is just… Ugh), and the Victors and Areana. I also loved finding out how Haymitch won his Games. Mockingjay is my least favorite, mostly because of HOW FREAKING DEPRESSING IT IS.

    Lastly, for In The Areana, I have to agree with Elana about Johanna winning. The fact that she was able to tackle Katniss without her being able to fight back while Johanna pulled out the tracking chip just proves that she would win, hands down.

    Love the podcast, especially since there are TWO girls and TWO guys. WAY BETTER THAN ANDREW SIMS’ PODCASTS.

      Actually, Katniss was still half-unconcious when Johanna pulled out the tracker. Remember, Johanna knocked Katniss out with the coil of wire, then when Katniss woke up Johanna was pinning her to the ground and cutting out the tracker. She was really disoriented and really weak.
      Katniss would win.
