Welcome! If you are new to Perpetual Chess you've got some catching up to do! You can find out more about why Perpetual Chess exists and what we do here, but basically we do long-form interviews with chess players, created with the on-the-go chess fan in mind. We have had interviews with chess luminaries of all sorts, so if you are a hardcore chess fan, you may just want to scroll back to Episode 1, and then make your way forward. 

If you prefer to pick and choose which to listen to, I have tried to categorize the interviews a bit for what suits your interests. Of course there is a lot of overlap in the categories, so a few guests are listed more than once, and many more could be listed in many categories. Most importantly, every guest is listed at least once, so if you can't find your favorite chess personality here, they haven't been on the show (yet 😉) . :)  (last updated on 9/11/2018). Enjoy!
