    In 3.0 why is there 2x and 1/2 speeds? They make podcasts unlistenable, I c no point in it!

    I use the 2x speed - if find it listenable, and it saves time!

    I suppose 1/2 speed would be useful if the podcaster rattles off a url or email address too fast?

    That's cool, they have that for audiobooks as well.

    it might be useful in making podcasts smaller in size.

    i was thinking that if the podcast were twice the speed of the original, then by using the 1/2x speed thing to make it sound normal again would save space on the phone as the original file would be much less.

    ah schmuck.

    Humor, maybe? Everything's funny in slow-or-fast motion. Preferably some blend of the two.

    It's for someone who has limited time to listen to a podcast. For instance if someone has a 30 minute drive to work and they want to listen to an hour long podcast at 2x..
