My Week In Chess: Seeing Progress, Podcasting About My Journey.

Starting to see some gains!

All my work I’ve been putting in, I’m starting to have something to show from it.

I was on a podcast

Last week, I got to be on Dr. Scull’s adult improver chess podcast — my episode went live on Thursday! You can check that out here. I talk about my journey from zero chess at the beginning of the year to all the ways that chess permeates through my life now. This is the first time I’ve been on a chess podcast, and was a bit nervous because I’m still just a beginner at chess. But we had a great conversation, and Kevin is great.


That’s been my week in chess. Pretty short and sweet but I’ve been working on some stuff behind the scenes that I’m excited to tell you about soon.
