One of the things that keeps me busy when I am not teaching chess is my podcast, The Perpetual Chess Podcast. Perpetual Chess is the most popular chess podcast in the world, with over 500,000 episodes downloaded! I have had the privilege of interviewing many elite professional chess players about their lives and careers. My guest have included legends of the game like Grandmasters Hikaru Nakamura, Peter Svidler and Judit Polgar.
Perpetual Chess is not really geared toward scholastic players and parents (although I have had some other scholastic chess teachers as guests on my show), but you still may find it of interest to hear what it is like to be a chess professional or chess author. You can learn more about the show here, and can subscribe to it on Apple Podcasts or any other podcast platform.
