    Can anyone recommend a good chess podcast or audio book? I have some decorating to do and thought one of these on my ipod would help the hours pass.

    Mike Basman used to sell chess cassettes with basic opening theory on.

    No idea if he still does.

    Had a few of the tapes.
    They were good - your eyes never left the board - you turned off
    the tape a key moments to work out the next move.

    Mahout get plugged into The Beatles then the DIY will be a cinch.

    What were you wanting to do, hang paper to theory of the Ruy Lopez?

    If you want something chess related try "How life imitates chess" by Gary Kasparov or "The Chess Machine" by Robert Lohr.
