Quick and informative news format works for me. This is sometimes the only thing I have time to watch in a given week. I will say, the previous format often involved two geeks chilling with drinks, which was a distinctly relaxing joy to watch. I do appreciate that you change the setting every week.
The classiness of the new format looked great. Not quite as fun, but for a 10 minute weekly show, I can see how finding a new bar every week might be getting to be a little much from a production standpoint.
Slide wise, I would stay with the old format of zooming in full-screen on the slides so it breaks the topics up a bit into clear, digestible chunks; plus we can see the slide content better. But still zoom back out before the next topic so we still get some face time with the host.
