As a special feature of The Fanbase Weekly podcast, the Fanbase Feature focuses on and celebrates a specific element of geek culture.


In this Fanbase Feature, Fanbase Press co-founders Barbra and Bryant Dillon and special guests Claire Thorne (writer, A Geek's Guide to Cross-Stitching: Journeys in Space; co-host of The Fanbase Weekly podcast) and Tony Caballero (writer, Magic Beyond Words: The J.K. Rowling Story and The Katniss Chronicles audio drama) participate in a thorough retrospective discussion regarding the recently released Hunger Games prequel novel by author Suzanne Collins, The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes (2020), with topics including how the book changes opinions of the original Hunger Games trilogy, thoughts on Coriolanus Snow as a lead character, the unsettling romance between Snow and District 12's Lucy Gray Baird, and more.
