There are already so many videos, podcasts and blogs that address this content. I do not recommend pursuing this content.

I don't wish to be discouraging but it seems a lot of work for no reward.

If there is a hot word I wouldn't watch a 10 min pod cast. All I would want is 10seconds to look at the word and example sentences. If I think it's useful I just put that into my flashcard system 

 

Also I don't think it's useful actively searching for these words. It's better to come across then naturally, in wechat conversions, web blogs,  forums, conversations etc then check the meaning . The frequency (and widespread usage) of them appearing, means by definition they are "hot words". Further a word might be just used by a particular age group or particular sex  thus making them inappropriate for someone who doesn't fit into that category to use. Same with English. It sounds cringy when a Chinese person  uses black American slang.

Run this as a Twitter / Weibo thing. Post about new vocab as you notice it, with an explanation and a link to actual usage. Far quicker, far easier to consume.

Its only one opinion though, don't let that put you off! Many people might like these type of podcast.i should add that I don't like ANY podcast across many disciplines so I might be an outlier in my opinions

Make a lot of  sense, but writing is not my cup of tea. Thanks!

Thanks pal,  I am not so easily affected,  I am still good so far, LOL.  Your input  sounds not so good , but I know it is the best remedy, 苦口良药.  Comments is always warmly welcomed. BTW, the hot words video turns out to be a bit difficult for me,  from choosing the topic, how to interpret etc., so maybe you are correct.
