I'm at work so I can't view it, but any mention of a "long distance charging network" for the new Bolt?

That "charging network" exists. It is the thousands of 230 VAC outlets installed in homes and businesses. All you need is the cable and EVSE.

Re: charging network. Note that this video emphasized that GM is very, very focused on short-term cash flow, profit, and long-term market-building in all market segments. I believe their vision is that long-distance EV fast-charging networks are better done 3rd-party like gas stations and that market forces will resolve deficiencies in that segment. They were very aggressive through the SAE at developing a "standard" DC charging protocol to facilitate open 3rd-party charging networks.

Tesla's dire financial situation is evidence of the high price of building out and operating an in-house proprietary network. They had no choice, though.
