Meet the Host

After creating a March-Madness style bracket game for the 2018 midterm elections (for fun, like a weirdo) Ty Wycoff realized his passion for discovering new ways to get people engaged in politics. In the summer of 2020, he founded This Historic Moment and its flagship podcast, The Millennial’s Guide to This Historic Moment. He’s not a historian nor a political scientist; he’s just a student of history and a political acolyte who geeks out over electoral maps and thinks watching congressional hearings is fun - again, like a weirdo.

He’s done a lot of other things, too: from freelance photography and a range of public speaking experience to copywriting for business acquisitions and mergers, working with startups, project management, a brief stint in cinematography school, and even...dog training? Yes, dog training!

But the variety of professional experiences and the skills he’s picked up along the way, including writing his own bio to convince you he’s important, orbit around one singular passion he’s had his entire life: storytelling.

And don't be fooled: politics isn’t the only thing he’s obsessed with. In his free time, he plays and writes music, enjoys skiing and hiking, and still picks up a camera from time to time.

He lives in the mountains of Montana with his partner, a cute geologist named Natali.
