Jono & Ben - The Podcast

Jono & Ben - The Podcast

This is mildly amusing banter at its mild amusing best! We’re Jono Pryor and Ben Boyce, two best mates who started their work marriage a decade ago in a quest to become a hotter kiwi duo than a mince and cheese in a scalding service station pie! While we aren't there yet, you can catch us weekdays on The Hits breakfast to talk about our life misadventures, big interviews, fun games and plenty of LOLs. OK, we can’t promise LOLs but hopefully you stopped reading after we said LOLs the first time.

So we asked you guys whether anything had ever happened to you that could've been in a movie. Tavita phoned through and told the story about how he stopped a jewellery heist! We also caught up with journalist Paddy Gower about his new documentary Paddy Gower on P, where ...

Hello! Today on the show we had a school teacher on who was approached by a former student, now in his 20's, who wanted to go on a date with her. Should she do it, or should she leave it? Ben's daughter's love for making signs & notes turned into a very ironic moment, and we also spoke about the dangers of saying you're "5 minutes away". Enjoy the podcast!

British talk show host Graham Norton caught up with Jono and Ben to give us all the goss.
He dished on his collaboration with Kiwi-owned Invivo Wine, the celebrities he’s interviewed that he still gets star-struck by, and of course how so many Kiwis end up on The Graham Norton Show’s iconic big red chair.
He also took a quick quiz and revealed what he really thinks of some of New Zealand’s famous faces.

Hello hello! Today was a really interesting show. If you haven't been following along with the international drug bust that has resulted in the arrest of 800 criminals, you really should be! We spoke to Jared Savage from the NZ Herald who gave us a rundown on what has happened, and how an app created by the FBI has caught so many criminals around the world! On a completely different and lighter note, we discussed the BTC - Best...

Kia Ora! On today's show, we played a good old game of Liar Liar. This is where we have 2 callers on, each sharing an outrageous story they have. But only one of them is telling the truth. We ended up having a chat with Vanessa Cater who's worked with Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart & Adam Sandler. We also got Producer Juliet to give Jono the low-down on social media etiquette, and at what point you should follow someone on ...

Hello hello!

One of our listeners spoke to us about an issue she's facing at home; her partner's parents never help out or babysit their children. But should they be obligated to babysit since they're grandparents!? This was a hot topic this morning! Ben also took his daughters to the Wellington Phoenix game over the weekend, and they did some woooonderful commentary of the game, when they had absolutely no idea what was going on! F...

If you're a huge fan of Friends, get this podcast in your earholes ASAP! It's been one of the most highly anticipated reunions, the Friends reunion.

We spoke to Ross' first wife Carol, Mr. Heckles, a woman who was ca...

Hello & happy Friday! We were joined by a couple of great guests today. Jared Fell, who is a comedic magician, did a couple of magic tricks in the studio and we literally couldn't believe what he did. Insane. We also had Greg Grande on, who was the set designer of Friends (and the Friends reunion too!). On the topic of Friends, we discussed the greatest things from the 90s that we'd love to bring back today. Mixtapes, o...

Jono also got into another internet wormhole but about some really interesting things you may not know about Friends. Finally, Ben's wife Amanda loves shopping, ...

Hello! Today we were joined by Phil Solem from The Rembrandts. Now you may not know the name, but you will absolutely know the Friends theme song, and he's 1/2 of the duo who sang it! We chatted to him about how the song came to be and the famous clap we all do when we sing along. Ben also shared that he cried at his daughter's football game, very embarrassingly. Finally, Jono was almost a very good Samaritan last night. AL...

Listeners called up with their horrific experiences involving teeth, and Ben had to decide wh...

Ahead of the Friends reunion this week, we decided to hold our own! Not the main cast (because they would never dish any dirt!) but the people you will vaguely remember 😉 Today we spoke to Ross' first wife Carol, she was super interesting and was actually up to play Rachel initially! Non-Friends related, we also spoke to a lady who has had a change of heart and wants to change her 4-year-old daughter's name from Ste...

On today's show we played Liar Liar, where we were presented with 2 callers, both with big claims, and only one of them were telling the truth. The truth teller was someone who had legitimately won an Oscar! We were also joined by Suzy Cato, an advocate for Pink Shirt Day (which is tomorrow), as well as Delta Goodrem who is going on tour and will be in NZ in October. Enjoy!
