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.

Kia Ora! On today's show, we said (a temporary) goodbye to producer BHumps, who is about to have his first child with his partner tomorrow. So we opened up the phones and asked for your baby advice, some good little nuggets of advice in there! We also caught up with psychic Kimberley Stewart from The Channelling, who gave us her predictions on which seat 50 tickets to Six60 will be under, before we attempt the biggest round of ...

Hello! Today we broadcast from Christchurch again, but this time from Black Betty Cafe with our Free Coffee Fridays! We caught up with the famous Wizard of Christchurch and talked about how he became a wizard in the first place, whether he owns a TV and the story of his car that has two front ends! We also had a bit of an emergency in the hotel where the fire alarm went off, and we wanted to know about the most embarrassing evacuat...

Hello! Today we were broadcasting from Lincoln in Canterbury from an Orange Homes show home, a beautiful new build! Jono decided to give away some new appliances from the show home, not sure if he was allowed to, but he did anyway! We also discussed the most bizarre places you've slept or fallen asleep; one caller fell asleep while getting a rib tattoo... Last night we also stitched up Jono in Christchurch when he landed, but i...

Hello! On today's show, Ben shared the one nickname he hates being called because it feels condescending. This OPENED THE FLOODGATES, and we had many people share the nicknames that get under their skin. We also discussed what the best seat you've ever sat in was - did you get upgraded on a plane? Did you sit next to a celebrity at a restaurant? All that and more random chats in today's podcast!

We caught up with Chris Mac again this morning after Jono requested FIFTY tickets to Six60's Eden Park concert so that we can give them away. Chris is giving us 50 but only on one agreement... We also chatted to listener Lisa who recently got married, and she wants to finally join bank accounts with her husband, but he isn't keen. What should she do? Is it fine to have separate bank accounts when you're married? Finally...

Today we caught up with UK correspondent Gavin Grey, who filled us in on all the details surrounding Prince Philip's life, death & upcoming funeral. He then shared a story about how he nearly knocked the Queen to the floor when he was reporting... AWKWARD! We also wanted to see how many other people had met the Royals, one caller said Prince Philip & The Queen visited her in the hospital when she was a child! Jono is al...

Happy Friiiiiday! The other night we hosted our 5 Words Pub Quiz, where we played our daily game in person with a bunch of wonderful people! But Jono was doing something throughout the night that was also captured on our Facebook live stream. Something that you don't necessarily want people to see! We also continued on yesterday's topic of what your claim to fame is. Yesterday we spoke to Kanye West's old housekeeper, s...

This is crazy. Today we spoke about what your claim to fame is. Both of us, in hindsight, had quite mediocre claims to fame. But my word, some of our listeners phoned up with stories about their crazy interactions with celebrities like Kanye West, Meghan Markle and Victoria Beckham. We were also joined by comedian Dai Henwood, as the new season of 7 Days starts again tonight. Finally, Ben's dog Beau embarrassed him once again, ...

On today's episode of the podcast, we discussed which emoji's classify you as "old", and turns out Jono has some skeletons in his closet when we looked at his most frequently used emoji... We also had Becky on who is due to give birth soon. She wants her own mother in the birthing suite with her, but not her mother-in-law... And the mother-in-law wants to be there. What should she do!? Finally, Jono showed off a wee...

Kia Ora! On today's show, we chatted about your childhood dream job and whether you ended up pursuing it. Over the weekend, we received the loveliest compliment from a stranger, but what happened 2 minutes later was not what we expected! Finally, Jono went down another wormhole, this time, giving us 29 INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT BRAD PITT. (We didn't let him read out all 29, don't worry!) ENJOY THE PODDY!

It's our favourite day of the year - April Fools Day! Today Producer B Humps tried to set up Jono & Ben with stories from people known for weird and wonderful things, where we spoke with a lady from the UK who is addicted to eating bricks. Plus we also spoke with Nurse Jenny from Invercargill, infamous for looking after UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson. We also chat with American actor Michael Peña about his involvement in t...

Today we called Matakana in the A to Z of New Zealand and called local Matakana resident and broadcaster Kate Hawkesby. We might be in a bit of trouble after making that call... We also talk smells that throw you back to your childhood (like playdough and deep heat!) We also catch up with pop trio (and brothers) AJR, who have just been certified GOLD in New Zealand with their song 'BANG'. We also opened the phone lines to l...

Hello! After the news of Prince William being crowned "World's Sexiest Bald Man", Jono decided to make his own top 5 list, BALD BROADCASTERS EDITION. We also chatted to Whitney Buha, a lifestyle blogger who had a botox procedure go wrong, which sparked the topic of botched beauty makeovers that you may have experienced. We had a brilliant caller who tried to do a bit of at-home waxing... it went horrifically wrong! Fina...

On today's podcast, Ben dissected Shania Twain's song That Don't Impress Me Much. And he has some thoughts, which are very valid! We also discussed when you misfired a text message or email to the wrong person & the consequences you faced from this. The list for the world's sexiest bald men came out, and Jono is shocked at who made the top 5. All that and more on today's show!

Kia Ora and HAPPY FRIDAY! Today we were broadcasting from Hamilton, from Plus Ninety One Cafe. Because we're away, Ben's daughter Sienna left him the MOST ADORABLE NOTE for him to read when he got to Hamilton. But it was also quite amusing too, bless her heart! Jono was also desperate to get either the Wiggles or the Chiefs in the cafe for an interview (The Wiggles are also in Hamilton at the moment), so he kept on requesti...

Happy Thursday - on today's show we had Julian Dennison, he's been in Hunt for the Wilderpeople, Deadpool 2, and he has a new film out, Godzilla vs Kong, which is in cinemas now. He's a really talented dude and is only 18! Jono also shared a huge mistake he made at the doctor's yesterday, and finally, we took some recommendations from you guys about what shows or movies we should be streaming at the moment! Enjoy th...

Gday all! Today we were joined by Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern & we tried to play a little trick on her. Needless to say, she did not fall for it. THAT WOMAN IS SMART! (Duh). We also unpacked a bit of a dilemma regarding someone getting culled from the wedding list, but she'd already given a quite expensive gift. Ben shared an awkward hugging situation he found himself in, and Jono is living among hoarders! Enjoy the podca...

Hello! On today's podcast, we discussed how Jono is a grade-A punisher on a plane. He's someone you DO NOT want to end up sitting next to. So if you ever end up next to him, we recommend asking to move seats! We also chatted about people's smart pets and went on a mission to find the smartest ones in NZ - and it seems that cats are smarter than dogs. Finally, Jono got into an internet wormhole about Coca-Cola (when is h...

Kia Ora! On today's show, we discussed eloping and got Millenial Max to phone his mum and tell her that he and his girlfriend had eloped. Not something a mother probably wants to hear...! Ben also got stitched up by Jono, resulting in the boys from Six60 getting a hold of & maxing out Ben's card. We chatted about the most amount of damage people have done at work, and Jono revealed a habit that he has that is probably v...

Kia Ora!! Today we executed a prank on Ben that the team had been working on behind the scenes for the last week. Just before our show started at 6am this morning, all of us individually (and subtly) left the studio, leaving Ben in there all by himself, with no idea how to run the radio desk. When the show was meant to go live, Ben was flustered and alone, trying to figure out what to do. It was a shambles and hilarious! We also pl...
