Episode 186: A Very Spooky Sumo Halloween

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.
