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.
