About Us

Meet your Hosts Aaron and Buddy

Once upon a time in Sacramento, way back in the 80's, two children were born with uncanny abilities to consume all things movie, TV and geek related. They read comics, watched movies and tuned in to all the best tv with an insatiable, bottomless pit of an appetite.  Studies that we‘ve just made up have shown they have collectively consumed 82.3% of all entertainment media published in the United States.​ Then, they all entered their thirties, and along came real life. Careers, car payments, mortgages, girlfriends, wives and children. They looked back fondly at all the time spent entertaining themselves geeking out, and decided at this stage of their lives there was only one responsible, adult thing to do.​.. Start a Podcast.​

Coming at you from the Triple H-Q, That's Hardly Heroes Headquarters, we are a podcast about movies, T.V. and everything geek related. Listen to the Hardly Heroes to learn more about us and our favorite areas of geek-dom.

Regular Podcast Guests & Characters


Known Aliases:


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!

Hardly Heroes Podcast Dictionary

Words and Phrases We've Made Up and Use Regularly:

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! 

Sprinkles -  Host Aaron's REAL name. 

Stanley Poo-Brick -  Host Aaron (AKA Sprinkles) is known so well for his special tummy times, we've created a single amalgam to encompass them all . . . Stanley Poo-Brick. 

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.
