I am enjoying this show since I'm a big Civ V player but I wish these guys would get themselves a little more familiar with the game before discussing it. They didn't seem to understand some of the mechanics and were just wrong about others (Liberty social policy is not worthless to Venice: you get a free great merchant instead of a settler). They do a good job speaking in grand strategy/general terms but when they give specific examples their ignorance of the game mechanics come out. By the way guys: unhappiness from ideologies is countered with tourism/cultural output. And the culture victory is really meant to be a late-game thing, when hotels and certain ideology buffs really boost tourism dramatically. It may seem like tourism is dwarfed by culture for most of the early game but once you look at the later game buffs and strategically plan them out a little, you can zip along your tourism, even without conquering everyone (although that never hurts).
