    Where to draw the line. The two-hundred-and-twenty-first episode of PolyCast, "Taking Off the Asterisk", features regular co-hosts Daniel "DanQ" Quick, Philip "TheMeInTeam" Bellew and "MadDjinn" with returning guest co-hosts Scott "AlphaShard" Dirk and Andrew "fuzzyfractal42". It carries a runtime of 59m59s.

    The summary of topics is as follows:

    - 02m23s | Senate
    The viability of using Civilization V's Trireme units to attack cities, desirability of building outside a city's workable radius (07m36s,) and how to approach Civilization: Beyond Earth aliens in the early game (10m01s; recorded for Episode 220).
    - 17m01s | Forum Talk
    Loaded terminology and differing interpretations on what is and what is not cheating in CivV, sticking to non-optimal tactics in-game (29m12s), arguing for a National Park improvement in Civilization V (40m00s) and staving off starvation in a blunt way (43m49s).
    - 46m54ss | Miscellaneous
    How Civ: BE is to be connected to Sid Meier's Starships as discussed by game developer Firaxis Games at the PAX South 2015 convention.

    - Intro/Outro | Miscellaneous
    Going straight to the source, land-from-sea and a disputed anointment.

    Recording live before a listening audience every other Saturday, PolyCast is a bi-weekly audio production in an ongoing effort to give the Civ community an interactive voice on game strategy; listeners are encouraged to follow the show on Twitter, and check out the YouTube channel for caption capability.

    The National Park as a building is certainly another way of going about adding it to the game.
