I think a slightly wider net of guests is enough change:

-Perhaps the occasional Community Council member a few times each year.
-Perhaps Bug Squad and support channel and Documentation Team
representatives a few times each year so they can recruit.
-Perhaps the occasional live demo of something cool and new.
-Perhaps the occasional announcement...or authorized tease.

But not too much. 

As I recall, Jono's original format was intended to heal the community
after the big community blowup of 2011-2012, and I think it did so
rather well. The original format was mostly listening to defuse
acrimony and a bit of countering FUD.

Since such blowups sometimes happen at surprising times or for
unexpected reasons, I think that patient and listening element of the
Q&A is most important to keep up front.
