Episode 14 — “Hunger Games”

Play

This episode is about the movie and book that has everyone talking. Including the strangers and aliens . . .

Ben has read the book and seen the movie. Dr. Jayce has seen the movie. And Steve hasn’t done either. So Steve picks Ben and Dr. Jayce’s brains about the themes, ideas, craft, and appropriateness of The Hunger Games.

Why is this book so popular? Why is it so controversial? Does it deserve either? The sci-fi guys wanted to find out . . .

The discussion is a bit spoiler-ish, although not much gets revealed that couldn’t be figured out from the press and commercials.

If you’ve read the book or seen the movie, we’d love to know what you thought of them . . . and what you think of our thoughts. And if you haven’t, we’d like to know why. Join the conversation!

Plus, a listener (and old friend of Ben’s) writes in to talk about Hunger Games and gives us his take on sci-fi vs. fantasy. We’re curious — what do you think of his thoughts about sci-fi and fantasy?

Whatever your thoughts, please, let us know what you think. Or, if you have another topic you’d like to discuss that we haven’t covered, send us an e-mail or record a message as an mp3. We love sharing what you have to say, because it really expands the discussion!
