Gentlemen Detective ,

What an absolute gem.

Just listening to this as a prelude to the World Chess Championship - absolutely brilliant: clear, concise, clever and funny. Definitely going to listen to more.

Reids Cross Gray ,

Arguably a top 15 chess podcast. Easy.

If you enjoy chess you’re going to love around three minutes of each episode.

Strangely, I always end up staying for the rest.

My favourite podcast. Absolutely adore the thing. Thanks for putting out episodes, boys.
