About this Episode

Some words immediately tell the listener that the speaker is a sumo wrestler. Certain phrases and slang describe body types, money, and love. We tried to research this ourselves and ran into a wall of information we couldn't understand. So thank goodness for Mai, avid sumo fan and podcast listener, who helped us understand some sumo-specific terminology. If you are interested in Japanese language, this episode is for you.

HUGE thank you to Mai! Gottsu-an desu!

Big congratulations to the U.S. Women's Sumo Team for winning a Bronze Medal at the World Sumo Championships, 2023 held in Tokyo, Japan. We'll have more coverage about this soon.
