Delayed, but not denied – the 2018 Haru audio podcast is available. Andy and Bruce discuss what is probably going to be a chaotic and surprising tournament, and sumo fans around the world can watch.
So put on some headphones and grab a drink as Andy and Bruce bring you their thoughts on Haru.

“Onosho is unfortunately, um, a no-show.”
Fun as always, guys. With regard to Hokutofuji—it’s not really possible to avoid moving into the joi by trying to get your KK at M6 but being content with 8 or 9 wins. If we look at Hatsu, Takarafuji went 8-7 at M6 and finds himself at M2. Endo went 9-6 at M5 and is ranked M1. Shohozan and Chiyomaru vaulted from M9 to M4/M5 with 9-6 records. Basically, unless there’s an unusual confluence of winning records in the upper maegashira ranks, even a minimal KK anywhere near the joi will push you up into that group for the following tournament.
Great to see a new sumo podcast. Sure wish there was a download option available so I could take it along on my next trip to the dojo.
