A weekly podcast dedicated to our favorite sport - sumo wrestling. We chat about tournaments, current events, history, and our favorite wrestlers. Both Collins sisters have been performers, improvisers, creators, and comedians for over 20 years.
Having lived in Japan, Leslie loves researching the history and traditions of sumo. She also has a deep love for sumo karaoke singers.
