Episode 31 is here! We speculate whether elite online chess is completely oversaturated, whether chess can learn anything from franchise cricket, and discuss a sad missing persons case.

Episode 30 is an interview with English WFM Kanwal Bhatia about her careers in chess and machine learning. We also discuss the state of the game in the country with particular reference to women and girls. Kanwal's a thoughtful and engaging speaker and well-placed to make such judgements.
A very informative interview. It's well worth a listen.
I have belatedly caught up with this interview and I concur with Lawrence that it was half an hour well spent. Kanwal is indeed an interesting and well informed person, but I also found some of Phil's comments thought provoking.

Thanks, David!

We’ve just published Episode 32 as well. We pay tribute to Wolfgang Uhlmann, as well as to FIDE being clowns. Hugh has views on jeans, and Jon has a sing-song. Available on whichever podcast platform you choose!

Thanks, Nick!

Episode 33 has been unleashed and sees us get a bit grumpy about having our ideas stolen but then brazenly come up with yet more original material. Which will probably be stolen.

Who enjoyed Chess or Cheese from the latest episode?

Anyway, Frankie Mitchell has made us some brilliant new artwork for all our social bits. We're dead happy with them and you should definitely hire her for all your design needs.

Episode 34 is a fun romp through years of failure, decline and ineptitude. We recap Chess 9LX, muse over what correspondence players do in their spare time, and ask what the topical Rule of Six could look like in chess. Enjoy!

The Chess Pit is available on all podcast platforms. For your health.
