Podcasts playing back too fast!

I just listened to two NPR podcasts that I downloaded yesterday (Wait,Wait,Don't Tell Me, and Car Talk) and BOTH of them sounded like they were playing back at higher than normal speed. Pitch of the theme music was high, and the voices had a slight "chipmunk" quality.
These were the first two podcast downloads I made following the new OS "upgrade"--note the quotations...
Anyone else finding this?

(BTW-- these are both VERY funny shows, in case you're not familiar with them.)

Tap on your screen while they are playing, and you should get the scrubber bar, along with option icons, including 30 second rewind, and multiplier. It can be set to 1X, 1 1/2X and 2X. Tap on it to toggle between speeds. It can easily be turned on accidentally.

I have been having the same problem since updating to the new os, only it is when I am watching video. My video sound keeps on switching from fast to slow. I really hope there is an update, I am really regretting downloading the new os

ipod playing too fast in car through usb port

I just got a new Buick Verano and am having trouble playing audiobooks on my Ipod through the car's usb port. It plays the book so fast it sounds like chipmunks talking. I found out by playing around that if I go back to the Ipod menu and play ANY song and then go back to my book it plays in normal speed. This is so frustrating, though! To have to start the book, stop it, go back into the menu to play a few seconds of a song and then go back to the book..... has anyone else had this problem?
