Beef And Dairy Network Podcast is a monthly comedy podcast, which began in July 2015. It is produced by comedian Benjamin Partridge who plays the host of a fictional industry podcast for the beef and dairy industries.[1]

In 2016, the podcast joined the Maximum Fun podcast network.[2]

In 2017 and 2018, ten episodes were acquired for broadcast by BBC Radio 4, which was notable as the first time that the station had bought the repeat rights for an existing podcast.[3]


It describes itself as "the number one podcast for those involved, or just interested, in the production of beef animals and dairy herds"[4] and consists of fictional interviews, spoof adverts, fictional letters from listeners, and documentary features.[3] The show is a surrealist comedy played straight, and features a number of ongoing storylines, such as the search for (and government cover-up of) a "fifth meat" and the many ventures of disgraced slaughterhouse owner Eli Roberts.[5]


Partridge is joined by different guests each week, playing various characters from the beef and dairy industries. Guests have included Nick Offerman, Greg Davies, Josie Long, Andy Daly, Kevin Eldon and Katy Wix.[6] Later episodes have featured mock advert voiceovers and public service announcements by professional voice over artist Tim Bick.[7]


The Guardian named it one of the top 50 best podcasts of 2016.[1] The Observer called it a "lovely, funny show."[8] The Daily Telegraph wrote, "It's the ramrod straight delivery that makes The Beef and Dairy Network Podcast by far the best audio comedy around".[4] The A.V. Club wrote "When dealing with the absurd, few things help heighten comedy quite like commitment, something that Beef And Dairy does better than most."[9]


The Beef And Dairy Network Podcast has an unofficial fan club on Facebook, called Beef and Dairy Network Podcast Fans.[10] In November 2020 there were 940 members. To join the group, candidates must answer questions showing detailed knowledge of the show. The fans discuss evolution of the Beef Call number, and have a welcoming ritual where existing members are "moo-ed" in with graphical images and gifs.

The podcast won Best Comedy at the British Podcast Awards in 2017[11] and 2018.[12]
