Podcast sounds like it is Sped Up?

Does anyone else think that the Podcast sounds a little Alvin and the Chipmunkish? I LOVE this show and have for years and years. When I cannot listen to it on the radio, I listen on my Ipod. Lately though, it sounds like they have sped up the talking. Sometimes I cannot even understand what they are saying (and it is NOT the Boston Accent since I am from Boston!!) It cannot be that they speak that fast AND the caller speaks that fast…anyone else have this problem or is it just me and I need to slow down myself ???

your iPod (touch) can play it in faster modes. when you initially play the podcast there is a button to the right side of the slider that should say “1x”. Keep tapping it to cycle between 1x, 2x, 1/2x, etc adjusting the playback speed.
