Looks good Ian. My only concern is going to be the legibility of that particular font at smaller sizes, e.g. when your channel is viewed from a phone screen. I think if you have a publish schedule, it would be good to add it.
I love the font choice for the main section, but I'd go with a slightly less stylised version for the underside. Like, I REALLY like it, but it's hard to read the second line. I'd see if you can find a similar font that's a little less fancy. The tricky part of font choice, having some stylistic character but being able to read. But I definitely like the font even if it isn't the most readable.
Absolutely love the simplicity, but the text is difficult to read because it's kinda fancy and a bit too small. I can't help but wonder how the absence of graphics might impact your views, but no harm in experimenting.
