Three cheers for the ladies. The 2017 PolyCast Christmas Special, "Girls Playing Civ Three", is now available for netcasting. Show regular co-host Stephanie "Makahlua" leads former regulars Annalee "Cartimandua" Barney and Kelly "KMadCandy" with returning guests Ayla "kalleina" Radies and Willow Lucas-Smith. It's the third in the series of such specials: first, "Girls Playing Civ" ten years ago and most recently "Girls Playing Civ Too" in 2012. This outing carries a runtime of 63m22s. PolyCast is a bi-weekly audio production in an ongoing effort to give the Civ community an interactive voice on game strategy; the tenth edition of Evergreen, a side series on selected moments and topics that best represent the show, is set to be released in one week's time. Fellow sibling shows also in production presently are ModCast on Civ modding and TurnCast on Civ multiplay.
