64: A Chess Podcast
Hey! I’m David, host of 64: A Chess Podcast. I learned how the chess pieces moved when I was 3 years old, but only started playing chess in 2018, in my first year of college. One of the first things I did after starting chess lessons was download a free opening course on Chessable; this website has been my favorite study companion since then. When COVID-19 caused the world to shut down in 2020, I used Chessable to dive deep into my openings and endgames, and saw a dramatic improvement in my play both online and over the board. As an astrophysics researcher, I believe in the power of science, and let me tell you — the science behind Chessable works! Below are some of my favorite Chessable courses which I’ve studied and continue to learn from — thank you Chessable for sponsoring my show!
