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.

    February 25 - Mums Are Joining Only Fans!

    February 25 - Mums Are Joining Only Fans!

    Today there was some gossip in the school grounds... A mother has made an Only Fans account, and everybody is talking about it. Should she get off Only Fans for her childrens' sake? (If you don't know what Only Fans is, it's a platform where people pay to see *raunchy* content, so in this case, people would pay the mother to see her pictures...) So we discuss Only Fans, and then we debated whether eggs should be kept in the fridge or pantry. Too VERY important topics, obviously. Jono also discussed the thrill of driving his stressed boomer parents around when the petrol light is on. Finally, we had social media superstar William Waiirua on the show, he even joined in for the Celebrity edition of 5 Words for 5K!

    Hello fine people of Aotearoa (and around the world, if you're not in the Land of the Long White Cloud)! Today we were joined by Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, and in classic Jono and Ben fashion, we sprung a pop quiz on her. What was the last thing she Googled; we find out! We also talked about the UK's largest family, where the couple have TWENTY-TWO CHILDREN. Very impressive! So we wanted to know - what would wow us about your family? Finally, Ben's wife isn't too happy with him & his TV watching, and Jono has a new addition to his family! HAPPY DAYS!

    February 23 - We Chat To Chris Hemsworth's Stunt Double!

    Hello! On today's show we were joined by the stunt double of Chris Hemsworth, who's also been a stunt double for Tom Cruise, Ryan Reynolds and Daniel Craig, and he spilt all the secrets of what it's like working so closely with these stars! We also had our third winner for 5 Words for $5K; Tabby from Wellington took it out, proving that her and Ben's great minds do think alike! We also had someone from the office who's having a bit of a relationship dilemma. Her boyfriend wants to move to the UK, but she doesn't. Do they continue with a long-distance relationship or no!? All that and more on today's podcast!

    February 22 - If You Named Your Baby After The Place You Met Your Partner, What Would Their Name Be?

    February 22 - If You Named Your Baby After The Place You Met Your Partner, What Would Their Name Be?

    On today's show we had a bit of fun discussing what our children would be called if we named them after the place we met our partners. We had some brilliant calls, one person's child would be called The Grumpy Mole! You probably couldn't get much worse. We also reflected on memories from the school tuckshop - Juicies, McCain's Hawaiian pizzas, when your mum would be working behind the counter and sneak you free food, OH HOW GOOD WERE THOSE DAYS!? We also continued our A to Z of New Zealand and we phoned a lovely lady from a small town called Luggate to see what they're all about!

    February 19 - A Listener Of Ours Hasn't Drank Water In 35 YEARS!

    February 19 - A Listener Of Ours Hasn't Drank Water In 35 YEARS!

    Kia Ora and happy Friday! Today on the show we discussed our producer Juliet's excessive water consumption, and so we flipped it on its head and wanted to find someone who hasn't drank water in the longest amount of time. And Marty called up who hasn't had it in 35 years! What he drinks instead is INSANE. We also discussed the fact that Jono ruined a friend's big surprise. Classic, that big mouth of his. Finally, we caught up with actress Eiza Gonzalez and discussed what it's like to be photographed all the time by the paparazzi - in light of the new Britney Spears documentary. It's ridiculous how much the paps know about celebrities. Enjoy the poddy!

    Kia Ora! Today we were joined by SURPRISE bachelor, Moses Mackay! He's in the kiwi singing trio SOL3MIO and is a wonderful man, we're sure the ladies will be lining up! Who even knew we were going to have a Bachelor while the Bachelorette is still going on!? We also have a long-time listener who is not happy with Jono, after he made a promise to her YEARS ago that he still hasn't fulfilled. Finally, we discussed whether it's ok to wear jewellery from an ex while you're with your current partner!?
