Created in 2015 by comedian Benjamin Partridge, the format is presented to listeners as a serious podcast about the meat and dairy industries, produced as a companion to a website and trade magazine of the same name. In fact, the podcast is peppered with comic dialogue, surreal discussions, spoof adverts, and fictional interviews with characters that are played by other comedians.
The show has now also transferred to Radio 4, with the BBC having repeated select episodes across two series.
Writing on Twitter about the award win, Partridge said: “The show is only what it is because of all the amazing people who collaborate. Last night’s awards covered shows released in 2017 so here’s everyone who was involved in B&DN episodes in 2017.” He later added: “It’s such a huge pleasure to make this show. That said, on today’s hangover finishing the episode that will come out tonight is going to be ARDUOUS.”
