About this Episode

We are starting a new holiday tradition. For Valentines Day and now Halloween, we are going distinctly lowbrow and ridiculous. With Halloween as our inspiration, we share 3 “scary” stories of sumo related haunting and terror.

All rules are off the table. This one features cussing and a long discussion about the anatomy involved in mawashi wearing. It came from a listener question, we promise! We’ll get back to serious sumo stuff next week.

0 - 10:30 News from the web featuring the best interview reponses from sumo wrestlers and what happened when a good looking celebrity visited a sumo heya
10:30 Listener Question about Mawashi and Male Anatomy This is about nakedness, y'all
15:00 Story 1 The Cuke Spooks
24:00 Tochinoshin’s Retirement Wine Tasting
