Jeszcze nikt nie wspomniał o tematyce podcastów szachowych... więc najwyższa pora to zmienić ;) :)

Kim jest autor?
I launched the Perpetual Chess Podcast in December 2016 to help address a shortage of quality chess podcasts. I am a big fan of the medium, and I love chess, so the lack of audio-only chess content frustrated me and made it hard for me to consume chess content as a busy working parent.

I also felt that there was an abundance of quality educational chess content and excellent live event coverage on sites like and, but there was not much information about the chess personalities playing in the events and presenting the material. I wanted chess players, educators, authors and promoters to have a place to tell us their life stories, promote their books and reveal the secrets of chess mastery (and grand mastery).

I am gratified by the kind words and generous reception I've received from the chess community. I am having fun doing the podcast and feel fortunate to get to know more about some of the chess world's many brilliant and engaging personalities. Perpetual Chess episodes have now been downloaded over 100,000 times in over 100 different countries, speaking to the global reach of the royal game.

As for me, I am a decent but flawed chess player (FIDE 2174).I live in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania with my wife and young kids. I am a chess teacher, and like many other chess educators, I am doing my best to popularize chess and help kids improve at it. I still enjoy competing in tournaments and studying to improve my game when I have the time, but that is not very often right now.

In previous lives I have taught chess in New York, been a professional poker player for 7 years, traded stocks independently for a while, and I even worked in an office job for two years after graduating from college. I am always happy to hear from listeners so feel free to drop me a line here, holler at me on twitter, or join our Facebook group to discuss interviews, etc.

A tutaj jest blog ze wszystkimi częściami (wywiadami) w postaci podcastów (na chwilę obecną jest ich już 45!)

Jak dla mnie to jedna z najlepszych inicjatyw ostatnich lat. Naprawdę słucham z ogromnym zaciekawieniem tych odcinków. Wystarczy wymienić takie osobistości świata szachowego jak: Greg Shahade, Jan Gustafsson, Simon Williams (aka the Ginger GM), IM Sielecki (Chess Explained on youtube), Peter Svidler, Danny Rensch, International Master, and Vice President, Timur Gareyev (aka The Blindfold King), Thibault Duplessis is a 31-year-old computer programmer, world traveler, and the creator of one of the world's most popular chess servers,, IM John Bartholomew has become one of the most popular chess YouTubers in the world, Super Grandmaster Hikaru Nakamura, Judit Polgar i jeszcze sporo bardziej lub mniej znanych postaci świata szachowego.
