My commute to work is about to get a lot longer, so I am starting to stock up on listening material for the drive. One thing I have been wondering about is if there are any decent go lectures or discussions that are audio only? This may be a silly question, since Go is such a visual game.
I have really enjoyed watching Nick Sibicky’s YouTube lectures, and I credit most major improvements in my play to principles that I learned in those videos. I have tried listening to those lectures without the video, and it doesn’t work. There is too much “White can’t play here because black will respond here,” which is all meaningless without seeing the board. Even on lectures that I have seen before, I still can’t follow the audio at all.
My question then, is whether any meaningful teaching of Go can be done in an audio-only setting. If so, are there any existing materials out there that I should look at?
