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.

Hello hello! Today was a fun one, we spoke about when parents threaten their children, but actually follow through with it... like dropping them on the side of the road and telling them to walk home! We also crafted a little stitch up on Ben, he really wanted to speak to a Black Cap after their World Test Championship win. Producer BHumps couldn't get a Black Cap on, but instead got a guy from the office to pretend to be Colin ...

Finally, we caught up with a Palaeontologist and asked him a bunch of questions from some ...

Kia Ora! On today's show we asked you guys what minimal roles in your school production you were given, and we had some brilliant calls. Nothing hurts your ego like having to play a road cone! Jono got into another internet wormhole, this time about who the richest fictional characters are. Yes, we know that it would be impossible to measure this, but from what we know, there are some damn wealthy characters! Finally, we caught...

On today's show, we began reminiscing about the best things that happened or existed in the 90s.

Jono has recently been teaching his son about some great music from back in the day, and we then stumbled across the topic "if you could play one song to someone who had never heard music before, what would it be?" and it honestly made us remember some of the greatest songs in history. Bohemian Rhapsody, Man in the Mirror, Sweet Caroline, we covered 'em all! We also played another game of Liar Liar, and ended up speakin...

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?

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.
