Then... grab your skateboard and Walkman, Hero Sandwich is going back in time and YOU'RE going with them! Thats right, this episode Dave and Marty travel back to 1985 to participate in one of those awesome Nickelodeon Toys R Us Toy Runs where you get five minutes to fill as many shopping carts as you can before time runs out. Every kid's fantasy has turned into every collector's dream, with so many classic toy lines, what will they pick? Will they be in dealer or collector mode? Tons of laughs, if you love vintage toys from the 80s, this one is for you.
Marty is heading to sunny Orlando so the boys decide to tyake it easy and just have another casual mix tape session. On the tape today: Teen Titans 12, a vintage toy Dave snagged, Nintendo Labo, Marty's talk about childhood fears, Solo; A Star Wars Story, Dave's dirty secret, and the dark side of video tape renting? It make not make sense now, but it will after you listen. Well, hopefully. Either way we think you'll enjoy it! Give a listen now!!
It's almost the end of football season and that means SUPERBOWL time! But how do nerds celebrate? Here at HERO SANDWICH we do The Superhero Fantasy Football Draft Superbowl!!How does it work? Just like a real fantasy football draft, Dave & Marty take turns picking players- but instead of professional athletes they draft Superheroes and other characters from Pop Culture to play a real football game. QB, RB, two WR and a Defense comprised of your favorite heroes, but before that they hit the turf, they have a great discussion on buying Star Wars figures in the early eighties and a particular scene in Attack of the Clones that looks like characters are standing on giant, well, you have to listen... All that a a new Nerd Rage!
"Put your mouth where the puddin's at!"
Welcome 2018 in the best way possible- By building up your "nerd" portfolio with a new Nerd Stock Exchange. For those who aren't familiar, the NSE is a bit where Dave & Marty talk all things nerdy: Movies, hobbies, trends, etc, then determine if now is the time to "invest" or cut bait and spend your time with other stuff. Tons of laughs, Dave sings, the "Skeletor voice" is heard... essentially classic Hero Sando
Discussed: Star Wars, Ready Player One, X Men/Fantastic Four under Disney... plus SO MUCH MORE and a new NERD RAGE!!
OK, you've seen Star Wars The Last Jedi, you have all these thoughts, emotions, theories and fellings and you're looking for something to process it all- look no further. Dave & Marty spend nearly an hour talking it out, the good, the bad, and the downright nitpicky. If you haven't seen Episode 8, download this episode and come back to it after you do because its SPOILER HEAVY!!! We really think it's the perfect post Last Jedi companion in terms of clearing your head. Surprisingly deep, thoughtful, and introspective of the Star Wars Saga, if you're a fan of the films you won't be sorry you listened!
I know we said we wouldn't be back until our SPOILERIFIC Star Wars Ladt Jedi pod in a few weeks, but we missed you and wanted to play a game! What game? Our eBay game. How do we play? Marty takes two nerdy collectible items and Dave has to guess which sold for more. Its that easy. Play at home with us and see how you do. Are you a better toy nerd than the Hero Sandwich crew? Listen now and find out! Tons of laughs in this little impromptu mini-sode.
The boys return on a Cyber Monday to discuss everything from Fart Blasters to Oozinators, and find time to have a really great discussion on last minute theories regarding Star Wars The Last Jedi. If that wasn't enough, they do a bit where each person must pick a person from Pop Culture who technically has a super power (but has never used it to fight evil), and have them fight The Legion of Doom. Its 100% as ridiculous as you might think. All that and an all new Nerd Rage! Over 50 minutes of stupidity!! Listen Now!!!
The boys didn't want tou guys to go hungry for content this Thanksgiving break, so they scrounged around in the Hero Sando vault and found two different "lost files" of Episode 36. Originally intended to drop a few weeks before Halloween years ago, Episode 36 was never aired because of tecvhnical issues (but we think we got that all sorted out)
Discussed: Vintage comic book ads, writing Marvel, why the Walking Dead stinks, literally, and Dave and Marty's creepiest rock album covers. All that and THREE NEW NERD RAGES. You heard that right. Listen now!
We've come a long way baby, and at times it felt like we'd never get here, but alas, here we are at our 50TH EPISODE!! We couldn't think of a better way to celebrate than to talk about old cartoons and Joanie Loves Chachi... PLUS DO AN ENTIRE SHOW OF NERD RAGE!! So much nerdy stupid anger, so little point.
Big thanks to all those who have stuck with us, you're literally the only reason we do this.
Join us in our celebration- Listen NOW!
Talk about a lot for money (wait, you paid nothing), Episode 49 is chock full of nonsense, literally, one subject after another in the first HERO SANDWICH MIXTAPE... a veritable Whitman's Sampler of stupidity. On the mistape you'll hear Dave and Marty discuss stuff like Star Wars Last Jedi, Michael Jackson, Journey, E.T., Mad Magazine, Playboy collectors, framed worthless collectibles, dumpster diving videos on You Tube, Marty's dad's stance on peeeing sitting down, and SOOO much more.
Dave and Marty love Halloween, and they didn't want to let the 2017 season passwithout putting something out, so they decided to throw together a special slightly fun sized 38 minute Rushmore ranking the worst Halloween candy to get in your little plastic pumpkin! Ultimately what you get is two grown men arguing about utter nonsense... so pretty much a typical episode. Really fun to record, we think you'll like it. Happy Halloween everybody!!!
Dave and Marty come back from the dead in a new little edit, direct to you episode... this week we talk about the "Classic consoles": Nintendo NES, SNES, the Ataribox and more. Are they worth the money, and even more importantly- the trouble? We also have a great discussion on Star Wars and the possibility of Star Wars fatigue. Is that a real possibility? All that and all new Nerd Rages. You'll be glad you tuned back in!!
Have you seen Rogue One yet? Of course you have, so Dave & Marty decided it was enough time to put out their take on Star Wars latest installment. Almost AN HOUR of just nerdy awesome Star Wars talk from two people who definitely view the franchise a bit differently. The boys break down what worked and didn't for them in great geeky detail. Did they both like it? You'll find out... but first Dave and Marty discuss the dangers of buying stuff off eBay or Facebook, which prompts Marty to bring up an odd hairy item he saw recently for sale online. That, and a topical Threes Company discussion broken down in typical Hero Sando form. PLUS an all new Nerd Rage!! The Force is with this one!
Happy Holidays to all the Hero Heads out there. To celebrate Dave and Marty got together in the same room (for the first time) and decided to channel their inner Scrooge to rank the TOP FIVE WORST CHRISTMAS SONGS. After that they decide to do a CHRISTMAS themed Mount Rushmore, where they rank things like FAVORITE TOYS, BIGGEST TOY DISAPPOINTMENTS, TOYS YOU WERE ASHAMED TO ASK FOR, AND MOST SOUGHT AFTER TOYS. Of course in all this they are able to fit in asscheek wedgies, Doberman ears, rogue soccer teams kicking packages and other nonsense. All that, plus Goldbergs, Batman V. Superman talk and an all new Nerd Rage. AN HOUR AND A HALF LONG!! Thanks for a great 2016 guys! Happy Holidays to you and your families!!
Dave and Marty (and Dave's daughter Molly) have returned, and no six months haven't passed. In this episode we hammer out our obligatory Guns N Roses talk, discuss Garage Sale etiquette and toy prices, then go into our main topic- The Holiday Movie Preview... well, sort of. In typical Hero Sando style the boys spend more time waxing on about Who's the Boss and Empire Strikes Back than this holidays upcoming films: Assassin's Creed, Disney's Moena, and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The pod ends in a historic Nerd Rage, you won't want to miss it.
Dave and Marty are back, and this time things are different. Unedited, raw and uncut... in an effort to get out more pods the boys decided to just push the record button and chat, and did they ever: What have they been up to, Nintendo Classic and the Nintendo Switch, thought on Dr Strange, and a lengthy discussion of the upcoming Star Wars Stand Alone films like Han Solo, Boba Fett, Obi Wan and more. Plus Marty tries out a new Ebay game with Dave. All that and a new Nerd Rage!! Give a listen!!!
Dave and Marty are back from...ummm... vacation? Well, Dave explains where they were, and it partially involves interviewing for Cobra Commander. As you would expect, the boys have a lot to catch up on, and the topics range from gorillas, Comic cons, Stan Lee, Kevin Smith (and Dave's run in with Ming), William Shatner's odd panel at Wizard World, the Ghostbusters reboot, Guns N Roses, Ant Man, Civil War , and SO MUCH MORE. Then, after a much needed NERD RAGE, the race is on:
Have you seen The Force Awakens!? Of course you have. Are you dying to listen to a couple nerds discuss it in all its spoilerific glory? Then this pod's for you. Dave and Marty are back, and ready to dissect the latest Star Wars offering, but only after they discuss the Guns N Roses reunion, Tea bagging in video games, Star Wars collecting, and of course Marty's Dad's hatred of farts is revisited, but this time it's straight from Marty's dad himself. All of this is foreplay for an epic Star Wars discussion where Marty reveals his theory about who Rey is and most importantly, who dropped her off on Jakku. Many theories are coming out, but we at Hero Sandwich are confident we figured it out first, All that and a new New Rage. Listen now!!! WARNING HEAVY SPOILERS.
Despite the title, our 40th anniversary episode is so much more than just Nerd Rages (although it is the entire second half). The first part of this extra long pod is full of tons of stuff, including daylight savings time, Back To The Future Day, what collectible Hulk comics to look for at your flea market, Scrooge McDuck and most importantly, a wickedly cool in-depth discussion of Star Wars: The Force Awakens (based on the newest trailer). Make no mistake, this is a GREAT episode, but our anniversary shows always are. TONS of content, nearly a 1 1/2 hours, make sure you listen!!
How do I describe an episode that covers what Dave and Marty have been doing all summer AND includes a new Nerd Rage and Nerd Totem Pole? I don't, it's too much. This is a crazy episode which may or may not discuss: Fat Albert's reaction to Cosby,Bat dance and other odd movie soundtracks, the bizarre Dudley/Bike repairman episode of Diff'Rent Strokes, GTA Back to the Future mod, and a Nerd Point/Counter Point that devolves into utter nonsense. Plus so much more! You've waited this long, why not listen? It's almost an hour and a half of new Hero Sandwich goodness!!
