Bachi on the Horn (E07) - "Taikai Judges - Ft. Gerry McGoldrick!"

Having recently completed his PHD dissertation for the subject of Tsugaru Shamisen, Gerry McGoldrick takes a California vacation and visits Bachido HQ!

Mike Penny and I released a satirical video called 'The Bachi' which humorously addresses this interesting phenomenon at tournaments.
