00h33m00s | New Frontiers screenshot analysis thread
00h52m00s | Responses to live chat, “historic 4x resurgence”, debating the merits and concerns regarding this DLC release model

PolyCast is a bi-weekly audio production recording live every other Saturday at 12 Noon US Eastern Time throughout the year, in an ongoing effort to give the Civilization community an interactive voice; sibling show ModCast focuses on Civ modding.

We are releasing this episode for streaming earlier than usual (the day after the recording, woohoo!) due to the timely nature of its content. We’d hate to release it next weekend and have everyone listening to our speculation after the first DLC is released and then sound silly in how wrong we are about everything. Enjoy! We look forward to reading your speculation and responses!
