RevCast Special: "Reflections"
By DanQ at 2016-06-25 15:07
Image In October 2013, the fifteith episode of RevCast (RC), a gaming podcast focusing on the console-based Civilization: Revolution, was published. Marking the end of the show's fifth season, the show was quietly canceled early the following year after the regular panelists were unable to continue in the role and no replacements could be found for them all. Nearing three years later three of those panelists -- original hosts Annalee "Cartimandua" Barney, Alexander "Alexander" Strub and longest running host Matt "elthrasher" Morgan -- share their "Reflections" of the show and CivRev along with more than 30 minutes of previously recorded and unreleased material across its five seasons. This full special just over one-hour in length.

RevCast was the third spin-off of the Civ strategy-centric PolyCast, which joined fifth spin-off and fellow Civ cancelled podcast SCivCast which focused on the social media-based Civilization: World. Second spin-off ModCast, and fourth spin-off TurnCast, remain in production focusing on Civ modding and multiplay respectively.
