Aki 2018 Preview

Sumo’s finally back so you get to listen to more sumo podcasts, lucky you! Can Mitakeumi follow up his first yusho? Will Kisenosato finally finish a tournament? Is there anywhere you can go to escape the American political season? Probably not, hopefully, and no. We have breaks at 51:35 and 1:25:14 but you can feel free to call us to complain anytime at 805-613-SUMO (7866).

Bonus Episode 13: GSB’s 1 Year Anniversary

It’s been a full year since we started our podcast and we thought we should celebrate the occasion. For our last bonus episode of this off-season, we reminisce about our favorite  segments and the hurdles we’ve come across. Also, in a GSB first, we have a real live actual advertisement (no, seriously)! You can head over to the Tachiai.org merch store and use code “GrandSumoBreakdown” for a 10% discount all this week! As always, feel free to call us at 805-613-SUMO (7866).

Nagoya 2018 Recap

Congratulations to first-time tournament champion Mitakeumi! Regardless of injuries to some of the top guys, this basho was just lousy with young talent shining brightly and proving that the next generation will be just as exciting as the last. Join us for commentary, poor jokes, word from a sponsor at 40:05, and one last wedding quiz for Mak before he joins the ranks of married men. As always, find us on social media or drop us a line at 805-613-SUMO (7866).

Bonus Episode 10: Americans in Sumo

For our latest history project, we delve into some of the Americans who have had success on the dohyo. We decided that since American yokozuna Akebono and Musashimaru totally deserve their own episode, we’d take care of everyone else here. Enjoy, and feel free to send us your questions or leave us a message at 805-613-SUMO (7866).
