Another "Natalia loves the Dragon" photo

Chess is heavily underrepresented in the media, so I believe that appearing on TV, commenting chess events and chatting with chess fans is very important for promoting the game. As well as giving interviews - not for the sake of publicity, but for people willing to learn something interesting about chess. There's no media too small, no media too large - I'm trying to do my best to accept all requests.

Here's my new interview for the WeakSquare blog (English) and for RSport (Russian). Hope you will find them amusing and informational enough!
