Miranda Sawyer • The Guardian Apr 27, 2024

"It’s a surreal, deadpan and genuinely hilarious satirical show; an entire mad-but-sane universe built around a podcast about all things beef and dairy, created by Ben Partridge...last week, the actual Ted Danson appeared! It was genuinely impressive, as well as properly laugh-out-loud funny. Danson is excellent..."

Lauren Passell • Life Hacker Jun 12, 2023

"...fictional, absurdist, one-of-a-kind show that lampoons the world of beef and dairy farming...Listening is akin to reading a magazine full of satire, niche humor, surreal elements, wordplay, puns, long-running gags, and strong comedic writing...preposterous situations and characters that poke fun at society with straight faces all around, and the jokes always land."

"Listening to an episode of the Beef and Dairy Network Podcast is a little like what I would imagine hearing how BBC World Service would present the news of a Godzilla attack.

"It is surrealism played straight – if a listener wasn’t paying full attention to the details, they might assume that the received pronunciation and delivery was, in fact, from an authentic news segment. This is a strange and hilarious podcast – if you try it for 10 minutes, you might find yourself deep in an hour later, like I did. It’s refreshing and weird and entirely committed to the story it is telling you – and besides, where else are you going to find out the warning signs of lamb consumption in your community? I absolutely recommend a listen. "
