"I found myself machine-gun laughing into my KN95 while listening to Valley Heat. A lot of the gags running throughout Valley Heat might fall flat...But in the pod, sans visuals, delivered in Doug’s halting digressive style, they manage to caress the funny bone. Doug’s frequent calls with his sadistic father-in-law Chuck, owner of a car modification empire in Ventura, are particularly delicious. But unlike YouTube, the best parts of Valley Heat are the advertisements read by Doug and then overzealously scored by Cephlapods Are People, the biggest rock band in the Rancho Equestrian District.

"This thing has strong Mike Judge vibes, thick with a kind of humor that creeps up on you. Thirteen episodes are out now, following a wildly sporadic publishing schedule."
