av Guinness World Records: Behind The Book | Publicerades 11/7/2019

Why are we humans preoccupied with collecting the likes of bagpipes, lip balms, traffic cones and spoon rests? For some, it’s an all-encompassing lifelong obsession that can cost them thousands, if not millions, of dollars. And everything’s up for grabs, with the records limited only by the collectors’ imagination.

In this episode, Editor-in-Chief meets some of the more obsessive collectors from the archives, and shares his favourite holders from the new Guinness World Records 2020 edition. He also explores WHY people go to such extreme lengths to get their collections into the record books.
