    As many letters as there are in an alphabet. The three-hundred-and-sixteenth episode of Civilization strategy podcast PolyCast, "Not Just a Lame Clip Show XXV", features regular co-hosts Daniel "DanQ" Quick, "Makahlua", Philip "TheMeInTeam" Bellew and Jason "MegaBearsFan" Grade with six guest co-hosts in the twenty-sixth compilation of segments archived from previous episode recordings and not released previously. With a 59m59s runtime, the summary of topics is as follows:

    - 01m30s | Miscellaneous
    The position that the Civilization series is perpetuating an untruth about humanity is called in question (recorded for Episode 303).
    - 23m19s | Research Lab
    Expanding CivVI's diplomatic system to be more precise in declarations of war is examined (recorded for Episode 302).
    - 37m55s | Forum Talk
    What aspect of Civilization VI is most egregiously undervalued by its players (recorded for Episode 311).

    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. Episode 317 of PolyCast, the show's latest recorded outing in 2018, is to be published on September 2nd.

    Oof, I didn't realize how much time I hogged the mic between 2:30 and 5:00

    Great podcast as always

    I, too, believe we need a way to clarify the reason for our denunciations, among other communicative options, including the gentler "Hey, bro, that was not cool".

    Also, has an episode covered this article? TLDR: the game is about killing people, and its design actively discourages a pacifist approach.

    :D

    Not that article specifically, but the view it takes has been addressed otherwise over the years. That said, the means the author choose to go about this approach -- from ignoring Religion to disabling the Domination Victory -- take away greatly from its intended message. Appreciate the referral nonetheless though.
