YouTube sensation Graham Beck, the host of the Exploring Stamps podcast, has joined the Boston 2026 World Expo as an online philatelic advisor.
The 36-year-old native South African, who now resides in New Jersey, has nearly 29,000 YouTube subscribers watching his regular videos, which cover the hobby’s many facets from a fun and entertaining perspective.
Exploring Stamps has been online since 2016 with Beck’s videos – nearly 130 as of early December – raking in more than 3.2 million views. Covering a variety of subjects, they include how-tos plus country- and stamp-related topics and range from a minute to more than an hour in length.
In 2022, Beck received the American Philatelic Society’s Ernest Kehr Award for “making philately attractive as a hobby to newcomers” over at least five years, according to the award’s guidelines. In October, he also took his concept of “Xtreme” philately – described as “the art of taking a stamp and finding the object, landscape or person on the stamp in real life and snapping a photo” – to Stampex in London, England, for a special interactive exhibition.
The Boston 2026 World Expo, the next once-in-a-decade international show held in the United States, will take place in Boston on May 23-30, 2026.
