A weekly podcast where three guys talk about chess… occasionally
Water Squirts and Towel Action - Candidates preview special
The Candidates resumes on Monday so naturally the boys ask which of the chessers would be favourite in a cage match. May also include sofa fury.
Funny and Biting and Meaningful - with special guest Jonathan Levitt
This week Jon and Phil are joined by Grandmaster Jonathan Levitt who has a book out! Hear the guys discuss the holy trinity of 'c' words: comedy, cricket, and chess.
The World Of Ageing Sportsmen
This week we discuss which chess grandmaster has eight legs, which member of the world elite looks like Bob Ross, and celebrate longevity in all its forms.
Everyone Wants To Be Chandler
The murky underworld of social media and British intelligence services get a hearty airing this week. We also ask for your opinions on chess servers, and want your chess five-a-side teams.
As Noble As The Adversary
This week Jon hates mornings, Chris stretches the concept of a chess anniversary to its breaking point, and Phil offers some textual healing. May also contain long walks.
Do Laps Around The Board
This week we mark International Women's Day by celebrating Koneru Humpy and Vera Menchik while bemoaning the lack of equivalent opportunities for contemporary British female chess players. Otherwise, Jon is svelte, Phil is triumphant, and Chris is silent.
Upbeat and enjoyable podcast
Great podcast that pulls you in and is entertaining. Well worth a listen. Look forward to each episode.
I picked up chess about a year ago and one of the fellas on the podcast has also recently started. It’s great to hear him ask questions that I relate to as a beginner. Super fun group of guys.
