Sumo Kaboom

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

Episode 39 - Sumo Snack and Chat

"Everything started in the Edo period."
"Takayasu is a type A, right?"
"What does my bento box look like?"
Why do they serve chicken at a sumo tournament?
Is BINGO happening again?

In this laid back chat, we discuss the newest wrestler to the highest rank of sumo, Akua- his background, interests, sumo style. We also share how we learn and remember wrestlers, because when you first start watching sumo, it's a lot of men to know.

We're bringing BINGO back! Expect to see updated cards soon.

Then we give you an aural experience of what it's like at a real sumo tournament, from the seating arrangements, sights and sounds you might hear to the food and drinks served. We dip into the world of blood type personalities, too.

There's a lot of laughter in this episode and a little bit of adult conversation about prophylactics, FYI.
