Team T&A

Team T&A is the Podcast  team of Tyler and Arik, who have been friends since they first met in High School.

Every topic, fun fact, mystery, conspiracy, or random trivia you would ever hope to hear about is or will probably be addressed in this Podcast.

With Tyler’s dry wit, quick puns, and extensive movie and media knowledge, along with Arik’s unrelenting humor, fun facts, and endless curiosity, these 2 along with their many guests might just become your favorite things about Wednesdays!

Here are the Spotify and Soundcloud links to the whole series; the cards below link to each episode.
