At Arlington Transportation Partners, we love a good story. When we’re in between books we like to stay informed and entertained with great podcasts.
So, load up your queue, plug in your headphones, and join us in the virtual living room of podcasts.

No Such Thing as a Fish
Genre: Comedy, but also useful random facts of the weeks brought to you by four British nerds.
Why I listen: It’s a short podcast, great for your commute, or your bus ride to the grocery store. You’ll learn some really obscure facts such as: one of the main reasons people failed to enroll into the US army during World War I is because the military required recruits to have a minimum of 6 teeth. - Fadi
