Welcome to the Hardly Heroes Podcast "About" Section! We are a podcast about Movies, TV, and Everything Geek Related. What's "Geek Related" mean? If it's awesome and worth getting excited about, it's Geek Related. Join us every Thursday in the Triple-HQ for fun listen full of classic banter, geeky excitement and nerd-rage ranting,
Here you'll find everything you'll need to know about the Hardly Heroes Cast of Characters helping you become an instant "regular" listener, AKA one of our many spectacular Sidekicks! Read on to learn about your hosts, regulars & friends of the show followed by our own little Hardly Heroes glossary of typical words and phrases you'll hear on the show.
Buddy is a founding father of the Hardly Heroes Podcast and is far and away the funniest, most captivating and entertaining part of the show . . . just ask him! Never short on things to say or excitement to Geek out about anything, Buddy is a mega fan of Batman, Star Wars, Han Solo and Power Rangers among many others.
Hector the Collector has been stashing away Geeky treasures for as long as he can remember. Although, now that he's older and more mature . . . he collects ten times as much stuff because he has grown-up money! Comics, Cards, Pop Figures, Movies, Video Games, etc. Stacks on Stacks of collectibles and Geeky knowledge.
In the late 80's, two people were named Logan . . . Wolverine and this guy. Since this discovery, Logan has been a huge comic book (and most everything else) Geek. He's the Hardly Heroes Manager/Producer, which means he finds himself doing all sorts of random for the show. Unfortunately for you listeners, that can mean regularly listening to his Jarvis-like presence on the podcast. Overly informational and wise-cracking but with the added bonus of miscellaneous geek rage ranting.
Hey, at least Phantom Menace is favorite Star Wars Movie!
The Black GOAT
Aaron's Arch Nemesis
Always up diving into a good Marvel conversation and especially ready to come at you with deep cuts X-Men knowledge is our friend and resident sneaker geek, Brandon the GOAT! We'll find out how many pairs of sneaks he's got one of these days!
Bird brings an often appreciated female component to the show in a very enjoyable fashion . . . talking mad smack to Buddy. She is our go-to expert on Harry Potter, Dr. Who and most everything Disney.
As a man of Indian heritage hailing from Norway, Sunny, The Indian Viking, is one of our absolutely favorite Side-Kicks. Keep an ear out for his fantastic email commentary and audio message content regularly on the Podcast. If Buddy & Aaron are laughing to the point of tears (and maybe a little pee), it's likely been at the hands of the Indian Viking.
"In the Biz"
Aaron's Arch Nemesis
Curtis is a long time listener and friend of the show who spends his 9 to 5 actually out there working "In the Biz." Check out his IMDB page to see what he's been working on lately & listen to Hardly Heroes to get all the inside scoops!
NOT The Jubilie
Alright, FINE. We'll call him Aaron this ONE time, but that is it for the rest of the website! Sprinkles is one of the founding fathers of Hardly Heroes and has been a host on well over 100 episodes. He's the ultimate Flash superfan, originator of our "Sprinkle Me Some Conspiracy" segment and the geek best frenemy that you never new you were missing. You'll never be able to keep up with his encyclopedic knowledge of random everything and he is sure to rip you for it, but don't ask him where he left his car keys.
Batman (if you ask him anyway)
Manny is a founding father of Hardly Heroes and podcast host of yesteryear that can be heard attempting to herd Buddy and Aaron all the way through episode #106. Designer of our logo, composer of our theme song, owner of the proclamation "Go my favorite sports team!" and original nemesis of GOAT.
Buddy-ism - The English Language never stood a chance as soon as Buddy got in front of a microphone. If you're thinking "did he just say that?!" then you've probably just heard a Buddy-ism.
Sha-TING! - This is the Hardly Heroes stamp of approval, mostly applied to worthy movies. If you hear the Sha-TING, you should watch that thing.
Side-Kick - This is our affectionate name for listeners of the Hardly Heroes Podcast. We hope you'll be our newest Side-Kick and to hear from you soon!
Steamed Up! - When host Buddy gets so excited he thinks he's gonna pop!
Triple-H Q - Short for Hardly Heroes Headquarters, our name for the podcast studio.
Tree-Go-Now - One of our favorite stories from Aaron's youth is his mom yelling at him to go outside and trim a tree in the yard, using only the words "TREE, GO, NOW!" Use of this phrase has evolved to serve many purposes, including an additional nickname for Aaron, a multi-faceted swear word, or even just a random piece of transition filler.
