Episode #73 -- Konishiki For May 27, 2007.  Twenty years ago today, the sumo wrestler Konishiki was promoted to ozeki, becoming the first non-Japanese to reach the second-highest rank in professional sumo.  I talk about the life and career of this groundbreaking athlete, and why it is that I enjoy sumo.

Episode music is from "Sunrise," by Torchomatic.  Theme music is composed and performed by Marc Rose.
