    Plated and served. The one-hundred-and-twenty-second episode of PolyCast, "The Proof is in the Pudding", features regular co-hosts Daniel "DanQ" Quick, "Makahlua", Philip "TheMeInTeam" Bellew and Lisa "qnl" Bang with returning guest co-host Sal "Thorburne" Serio; it has a runtime of 59m59s.

    The summary of topics is as follows:

    - 01m38s | Forum Talk
    Weighing the advantages of using a Civilization V Great Artist to "culture bomb" over its other uses.
    - 12m16s | News
    Extensive coverage of the the then-up-and-coming June/July 2011 patch for CivV. Following a thorough interview: changes to the Happiness (22m46s) and Social Policies (28m12s) systems, technology tree/combat system considerations (31m18s) and assorted changes (34m27s).
    Then on minimal treatment of the game's Multiplayer mechanics (37m59s), incremental vs. comprehensive patching (43m13s), beta testing practices (48m42s) and summarizing thoughts (53m34s).

    - Intro/Outro | Miscellaneous
    Referencing a televised science fiction classic, fine imposition and wishing a safe and speedy return to a regular co-host to be absent for the next few months.

    PolyCast is a bi-weekly audio production in an ongoing effort to give the Civ community an interactive voice on game strategy; sibling show RevCast focuses on Civilization: Revolution, ModCast on Civ modding and TurnCast on Civ multiplay. As a continuing summer's delight, PC listeners can not only enjoy this -- the third new episode in as many weeks -- but also look forward to at least two more such outings; the next will be the first to focus almost exclusively on Civilization IV since last fall.
