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.

Nothing worse than when you've been calling someone by the wrong name, and they're too polite to say anything, but you then find out later that you have it wrong. Ben found himself in this exact situation. Awkies! We also talked about what your greatest achievement is. Tomorrow, if we manage to land 2 basketballs into a hoop from the roof of Eden Park, we reckon it could be our greatest achievement. But we asked you for you...

It's not something that many people would be able to pull off. But we spoke to Emma Timmis, a Kiwi who is doing just that. But she's doing the length of the country over 21 days! Which equals to be about 100km per day. Unreal. Ben's daughter posed a very interesting question which we spoke about this morning: If you knew about Covid one month before it hit in 2020, what would you tell yourself, or what would you do? Fin...

Quotes give us wonderful nuggets of wisdom throughout our life. But I bet you haven't thought about the fact that there are quotes that cancel other quotes out. You'll get what we mean soon... We also learnt today that Ben's nervousness has reached new heights, and we also caught up with Jeff Kinney, author of the very successful "Diary Of A Wimpy Kid" books!

The man who directed some of the biggest movies in history - E.T, Jaws, Jurassic Park, Back To The Future, and so many more, we had the ABSOLUTE HONOUR of interviewing him and the cast of his latest film, West Side Story. Not only did we speak with Steven Spielberg, we also caught up with our Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern. A project we're working on at the moment is remixing an old Kiwi classic song. There are popular remixes o...

There's a video from 2015 where Bill Gates gave a TED Talk on how the world is not prepared for a pandemic or a highly contagious virus... and it's so eerie to watch now! We also discussed the Christmas jobs that are so admin & unenjoyable, and finally, we caught up with Dr Joel Rindelaub who spoke to us a bit more about this new Omicron covid variant and whether we should be worried. Eeeek! Enjoy the podcast.

Taylor Swift's 10-minute version of All Too Well is officially the longest song to reach #1 in the charts. Today on the show we challenged ourselves to play it, leave the studio, buy coffees and see if we could make it back in time. Did we? Was it a shambles? We also spoke about a TikTok couple's crazy rules they have in their relationship... And we spoke to relationship expert Bridgette Jackson from Equal Exes to see if th...

To celebrate 100 days in lockdown, we gave a bunch of people $100 on air! While a lot of us have been "stuck" in lockdown, we wanted to know where else you have been "stuck"... One woman called up saying when she was younger, she licked the ice in the deep freeze and got stuck to it, with no help around. And that was just ONE story we got! We also discussed one of life's most mundane tasks and why it seriously s...

We continued on yesterday's chat about the most amount of money you've cost your workplace, and we had Russell come through with a craaaazy story about how his friend BURNT HIS BOSSES WORKSHOP while he was an apprentice! Good lord. And if that wasn't enough of a WOW FACTOR, we also had our segment Wow Wednesday make a comeback. We had a lovely lady call with a heart-breaking story that just seemed to get worse! Finally,...

We had the lovely & hilarious James Blunt on the show for an interview and straight off the bat we offended him with some false information about him! But all was ok in the end. He's a very funny dude & the chat was a lot of fun! We also spoke about the Aussie TV reporter who essentially cost his network $1 million, when he went to interview Adele in London, told her he hadn't listened to her new album yet, to which...

You'd think as a married couple, you'd be friends on Facebook? Think again! But Ben has a reason... Or so he reckons! We also spoke about awkward encounters you've had with a stranger, after Jono's friend really put his foot in it with someone at a dance recital. Finally, we've dug up some old audio of Jono claiming something, but now he just looks like a big ol' hypocrite when we play it now! Enjoy.

Jim Belushi who you may know from Saturday Night Live, was part of our segment Liar Liar. He now runs a cannabis farm! What a career pivot! We also played "Connect 4". where we tried to see if we could connect 4 people to Adele. And we spoke to a couple of people who have been associated with her! #Goals. Enjoy the show.

We spoke to a young belieber earlier this week and we wanted to find another belieber, but someone who was above the general age demographic of your traditional JB fan. And I think we found them! Jono also played some very disturbing audio this morning of a couple working out. But without the visuals of them working out, it sounded like a veeeery different activity. We also caught up with Dr Dougal Sutherland who is a psychologist,...

Please don't read that as "anti vaxxer" because Ben is actually anti vacuum cleaners at the moment. An anti vac-cer. Something precious broke while he was vacuuming and we wanted to know who else was an anti vac-cer, or who else has had problems with their vacuum cleaner! Also, yes, Ben did lie to children on a Zoom call and he got caught out for it! Oooooopsie. Finally, we spoke to a guy who has met Adele, in fact, Ade...

And he was betrayed by one of the things he loves most! However, this sparked some calls from listeners who had some outrageous stories similar to Ben. We also caught up with Archie Yates (who stars in Jojo Rabbit) and Irish comedian Aisling Bea. They both star in the new Home Alone movie, called Home Sweet Home Alone. Finally, Ben has a very specific arrangement with Jono when it comes to birthday presents, but he nearly messed it...

Ben's dog is getting more photo opportunities and more TV airtime than he is! So we threw it out there and we got some good responses, including the viral "It's a f***ing goat!" lady!
