Please go back to shorter format

I really enjoyed the shorter format where you treated a specific topic after which one could reflect on the ideas discussed, formulate next steps and dig deeper. But the larger format is really distracting as you jump from topic to topic. It also is contrary to the established research on learning abilities and information absorption (smaller chunks are better.)
In any case, this podcast really provides new insights and different perspectives to issues of the day while guiding to the future. Thanks for that.
