What does a “vexillologist” collect? What about a “vapoludologist?” Karen witnesses how Disney pin trading gets seeded, and Dana’s got a quiz on celebrities, and the weird and specific stuff they collect. And are Grandma’s Hummel figurines really worth something? Starring Karen Chu, Colin Felton, Dana Nelson, and Chris Kohler.
