About this Episode

For our final episode of 2022, we interviewed Iwatori-zeki, an retired pro sumo wrestler, and Lynn Matsuoka, artist and sumo commentator for 15 years at NHK. Wanna know what it is like to join sumo at age 13? Or, what it feels like to wrestle Chiyonofuji? This episode is right up your alley. Are you curious about how Lynn developed her style of sumo commentary? HINT: it involves cookies.
