    Open embrace. The two-hundred-and-forty-eighth episode of PolyCast, "Hug the Middle Ground", features regular co-hosts Daniel "DanQ" Quick, Stephanie "Makahlua", Philip "TheMeInTeam" Bellew and "MadDjinn" and first-time guest co-host Mike "MikeDoubleU". It carries a runtime of 59m59s.

    The summary of topics is as follows:

    - 01m34s | Forum Talk
    The case for adding three new Great People types to Civilization, a purported connection between game balance and modding (14m40s), a different type of consolation for loosing out on constructing a Wonder of the World and the notion that giving the series a Mature-rating would permit it to address more serious historical subject matter (25m05s).
    - 30m56s | Research Lab
    Questioning whether the use of tiles or hexes is "fundamental" to the Civ series.
    - 44m00s | Miscellaneous
    Rooted in the fifth iteration, but applying to the entire, franchise, is Civilization "educational" is the question posed by a content producer in their ongoing "Games as Literature" video series.

    - Intro/Outro | Miscellaneous
    Allusions to another game on another channel and closing a disparity.

    PolyCast is a bi-weekly audio production recording live every other Saturday throughout the year, in an ongoing effort to give the Civilization community an interactive voice; sibling show ModCast focuses on Civ modding, TurnCast on Civ multiplay.
