How the Civilization series tops a list for games schools should let students play (recorded for Episode 290) makes way for an argument as to what CivVI could ”learn from” the Call to Power series (38m24s; recorded for Episode 292) and on the history of the Civ series in general, speaking to the developer of each iteration (49m23s; recorded for Episode 295).
