Every few weeks I choose a theme that interests me and read you a piece of literature that touches on that theme. Usually it’s a short story, but sometimes it’s poetry or a literary essay. The rest of the show riffs on that theme via the chosen piece either with a guest or in a loose, freely-associative way with listeners to the podcast.

The Hunger Games Trilogy, by Suzanne Collins, takes place in a post apocalyptic future were the United States of America has collapsed and supplanted by Panem, a country divided into the Capitol and 12 districts. Each year, two young representatives between the ages of 12 and 18 are selected from each district to participate in The Hunger Games. The televised games are broadcasted throughout Panem as the 24 participants are forced to eliminate their competitors, literally, with all citizens required to watch. If you can get over the brutal concept of young kids fighting each other to the death for people’s entertainment and the fact that this series was originally written for a very young audience, we feel that you will come to enjoy this series like millions of people around the world have.
