Howard Stern on the Kramnik Blunder

Howard Stern, Artie Lange, and Robin Quivers

Howard Stern discussed The Kramnik Blunder for almost 10 minutes this morning. It is available for your listening pleasure here (note he talks about something else for about 20 seconds at the beginning).

Stern has been talking about chess a lot lately. It is usually pretty funny and very entertaining: he has been playing for a few months and has obviously caught the chess bug. He plays at ICC daily, though doesn't reveal his handle (he probably doesn't want to receive 800 messages a day from his insane fans).

In the clip above, Howard talks about Dan Heisman, Bobby Fischer, in addition to the Kramnik Blunder. The woman talking is Robin, his long time sidekick. The guy who says he'd rather watch paint dry than continue discussing chess is Artie Lange (he used to be on MadTV, but is on Stern's show every day now).

If you think Stern is all about naked women, the clip above is more representative of what his show is usually like (though he still has naked women). Even my wife likes his show, and she hates the naked women stuff. Even Susan Polgar frequently mentions his show favorably. She often mentions it on her blog when he discusses chess on his show.

For those interested in listening to Stern, you'll have to subscribe to Sirius Satellite radio. I love it.

Looks like there are some new chess blogs I haven't seen from zenchess and pawntorook4. Thanks for the notes (I responded at ICC, zenchess).

Zweiblumen: not sure why it isn't working. It is working for me still. Perhaps if you download it and then try to listen?

ROFL, I love how Stern calls him "Kramick" almost the entire time and Robin keeps calling Deep Blue "Big Blue." Thanks for the link, I haven't heard Stern in a long while.
