Sumo Kaboom

Leslie and Laurie Collins, Texan sisters, comedians, and diehard sumo fans, talk about all things sumo.

Episode 27: All about Abi

Lots of news happened this week in the sumo world, from baby announcements to Abi drama. We break it all down and try to understand from an outsider's point of view.

A big hearty thank you to Azumi Solbrig, our Japanese consultant for this episode.

Also, help Leslie find her next sumo boyfriend. Email your ideas to [email protected] or just reach out to say hello. We love that!

Thanks for listening.
