No apologies necessarily offered. Regular co-host Joe "joebreeves" Reeves and interim regular co-host Daniel "DanQ" Quick are joined by Firaxis Games Executive Producer Barry Caudill in the first of a two-part installment of RevCast (RC) on the release of Civilization: Revolution for the iPhone and iPod Touch; RC is a podcast focused on CivRev on its various platforms. This, the series' eleventh episode entitled "Geekiness in the Way of Nerdiness" (Part 1), is now netcasting with a runtime of 14m59s.
RevCast is the second spin-off of the Civ strategy-centric PolyCast; the modding-centric ModCast was the first such spin-off. Unlike either of its older siblings, RC has no defined segment categories. Its next episode, the second in this two-parter, is scheduled for release in a fortnight.
