About this Episode

Part 2 of a multi-episode series on sumo scandals. The concept of "yaocho," or match-fixing, is nothing new in sumo. In this episode, we take a deep dive into accusations, evidence, and changes that have been made to try to keep this practice out of the ring.

Lots of research goes into our episodes, and you can find that research on our Show Notes page.

Our Sumo Kaboom BINGO game is available to play every basho. 500 BINGO cards are available the Thursday before the basho begins. Go to www.sumokaboom.com for more details and to sign up. It's free.
