Podcast episode 209ish: Tetsuro Shigematsu

I tend to think of CBC national radio hosts as stuffed shirts. Maybe that's why Tetsuro Shigematsu never lasted at the Mother Corp, where he took over from the venerable Bill Richardson to host The Roundup for two years. It's hard to be a stuffed shirt when you don't wear one. I'd interviewed celebrated nudist Watermelon before, but Shiggy became my first guest to do the whole interview topless. I'm still not sure why, but it made for a lively show. (Ball's in your court, Watermelon.) We also talked about Tetsuro's on-again/off-again relationship (literally) with beat poet Allen Ginsberg and his experience as a samurai expert on Deadliest Warrior.
