Is there any possibility of streams or videos of Niantic Reviewers going through the review process?

Recent updates to Wayfarer have seen the criteria become more subjective, being based around exercise, socialization, and exploration as opposed to a rigid list of "approve" or "deny" categories.
As people have different learning styles, videos of Niantic staff engaging with the Wayfarer system in a variety of locations and documenting their thought processes with each review may be helpful when it comes to reviewer education.
Content of this nature would potentially give some insight into, as well as a model of, how we as a community can improve our own reviewing praxis.
Are videos or streams of this nature a possibility?
This is something talked about a lot on Reddit and Discord. A lot of people would love a video, or video series, of wayfarer team members going through things to review and how to apply the criteria.
While there are many fan-made videos, a lot are of poor quality and outdated, and often drown out the good videos. Niantic-made ones Would help a lot with those who are visual learners as well.
This was asked over a year ago with promise that it was in the works.
Would the Wayfarer team consider doing a live or recorded video of them reviewing nominations to help better educate the community?
This is a great idea, and something that we’re already working with our marketing partners to develop and roll out!
Over a year old. Yikes!
Gak! I guess the question should be "is this still on the roadmap?" then.
Considering how much rubbish is submitted, it would be a very short vidio for most submissions.
I was thinking more along the lines of a 15-30 review session. If the video wasn't live, samey nominations could even be cut out after a "yeah this doesn't meet any criteria at all" comment on the first one.
The key point would need to be an explanation of why "this doesn't meet any criteria at all", that's where the greatest need for education of submitters and reviewers lies.
