Final Stage Podcast Episode 19: Sasuke 1 Review: Back to Where it All Began (featuring Rich from Armchair Ninja Podcast)

Everything has to start somewhere, and Sasuke is no exception! For this episode we travel all the way back to 1997 and watch the very first Sasuke tournament. Back then, the course was indoors, the contestants were brand new to the course, and there were hardly any water pits. Join William, Arsenette, and our special guest Rich from the Armchair Ninja Podcast as we go back to where it all began and review Sasuke 1!

Also, we talk Team Ninja Warrior: College Madness, the opening of applications for both ANW9 and Sasuke 33 and we all answer your questions!
