VO4TA: Guinness Records

 

So in the late 70s John Moschitta, Jr. became the Guinness Record holder for the fastest talking man, being able to articulate 586 words a minute. The average is about 2 a second - 120 a minute give or take.

 

His record was broken in 1990 by Steve Woodmorewho spoke 637 wpm. Only to be broken again by Sean Shannon who spoke 655 wpm on August 30, 1995.  

 

And today the World’s Fastest Talking woman is Ms. Fran Capo, who speaks 11 words a second (about 660 wpm) and she is a native New Yorker.  No surprise there.
