Hatsu 2019 Recap

The Midwest is cold AF this week, so we keep warm by cozying up by the fire and blasting each other point blank with nerf guns. Also chat about sumo I guess. Good times. Check out our medical sponsor at 50:58 and leave us a message at 805-613-SUMO (7816).

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).

Nagoya Banzuke Prediction

I’ve decided to try my hand a predicting the banzuke for the upcoming Nagoya Basho.
