Beef and Dairy Network

Ben Partridge plays the host of a fictional industry podcast for the beef and dairy industry. He interviews all kinds of returning characters played by some of your favourite comedians. Fun, very silly, but never predictable. Listen here.

Birthday Girl’s House Party

Comedy sketch group Birthday Girls, aka Rose Johnson, Camille Ucan and Beattie Edmondson, invite you to their house party ¬– featuring an array of segments ranging from ‘haha’ to ‘so stupid it’s funny’. Check it out on BBC Radio 1 here.

Women like us

Katherine Parkinson and Katy Brand are hysterical as Lillian Bayliss and Jennifer Hudson, best frenemies who refuse to acknowledge they are doing this podcast to make ends meet. They chat about anything and everything, from fashion to politics to free speech to veganism and back again. Check it out here.

Haha… There’s nothing better than chuckling away to yourself on the train is there?

Laugh away,
