Winter welcome. The two-hundred-and-forty-forth episode of PolyCast, "Not Just a Lame Clip Show XVII", features regular co-hosts Daniel "DanQ" Quick, "Makahlua", Philip "TheMeInTeam" Bellew and "MadDjinn" with then first-time guest co-host Lotfi "ZTZaorish" Kerzabi in the seventeenth compilation of segments archived from previous episode recordings and not released previously. Its 59m59s runtime is extended coverage of a broad topic: the response to a detailed outline for designing a Civilization VI with an empire management design philosophy is just as comprehensive (recorded for Episode 237). Recording live 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; sibling show RevCast focuses on Civilization: Revolution, ModCast on Civ modding, SCivCast on Civ social gaming and TurnCast on Civ multiplay. Concluding PolyCast's ninth season, another compilation is to be published on January 9th as its Season 10 premiere... right after the live recording of its next episode.
