jcgoody ,

Great Chess Community

I joined the Dojo and quickly took to listening to the podcast version of their talks. The chemistry between Kostya, Jesse, and David is so good. Educational, enjoyable, and essential listening for chess fans both casual and serious. I look forward to every episode!
