'Everybody loves nog!'

The week's comedy on demand

The Beef And Dairy Network Podcast

A wonderfully deadpan podcast for those involved or interested in the production of beef animals and dairy herds, delivered with all the single-issue earnestness of specialist publications. It's the work of Welsh comedy writer Benjamin Partridge and comic Mike Wozniak, and is in the tradition of On The Hour. Listen to all five quarter-hour episodes here, culminating in an interview with 'modern comedian' Dustin France, in the wake of his disastrous performance at the British Beef Council Annual Dinner and Barn Dance.

The Parapod

This weekly podcast of all things supernatural returns after a six-week break for a two-part special in which comedians Ray Peacock, the unlikely voice of reason, and Barry Dodds, an avid ghost hunter, spend the night in 30 East Drive, Pontefract, a suburban house said to be haunted by one of the most violent poltergeists in the world. Part one was released earlier this week, part two is out today. Website.
