    Ichidai toshiyori no more?

    We won't. Make sure you don't run over people with your car.

    Ichidai toshiyori no more?

    Just to clarify, you are talking in the narrow sense of how they are listed on the banzuke right?

    Grand Sumo Breakdown - John Gunning Interview

    These takes strike us as interesting. When it comes to sport based podcasts, that morning talk show radio type atmosphere is exactly why many listen to them. There are of course podcasts that are educational but looking at a list here of about 100 across various sports, that doesn't really seem to be a priority in the field. Instead ex-athletes bantering with the hosts and telling after-dinner style tales as well as lighthearted banter and ribbing between hosts are the norm. In defense of the three podcasts in question we'd say that they are all made by relatively new fans to the sport and seem to follow the popular (casual) style prevalent in the medium. Perhaps we presented them in the wrong way in the initial post. This could also evolve into a wider discussion on sumo fandom in general which doesn't seem to have a huge amount of audience overlap between mailing lists, forums, subreddits, Discord servers and YouTube channels. Having spent a lot of time reading and watching content in all of the above over the past few weeks, the difference in tone and basic assumptions in each one is something else that's striking.

    Hello from Tokyo

    Currently there are six of us that deal with ISJ SNS content on a semi regular basis and another 15 people that provide virtually all the content used in certain posts so it wouldn't make much sense to do a personal intro as it's not the same people each time.
