Why are the console videos so long?

I've noticed that most of the videos tend to be under 10 minutes, and just as often, under 7 minutes. Why is that the Console videos by Jim Hoskins are so much longer?

I ask this because these videos give a lot of information. (Don't get me wrong, he is a good instructor). With so much information, it is easy to start to lose track and attention. (I have ADHD, so these shorter videos have actually been amazing for me).

I noticed this as well. It might be helpful to just pause and take a stretch break so help you maintain focus.

I have been enjoying all of the videos, but this has been the fist batch that has started to make me drowsy. It probably doesn't help that the content itself is relatively dry.

I've decided to start learning Python instead. At least until I can focus on the console stuff again. (Which I started to study per the advice of the GitHub instructor)
