This new trend of podcasts posting video clips reinforces for me that Americans talk too slowly and is going to be a problem. At least when I have them trapped in my podcast app I can make them speak at normal speed, but when they escape to video mediums it’s so much harder to bend them to my will.

@ianRobinson I never really got into audiobooks, but I’d definitely be using that if I was listening to a book! I do the same for WWDC session videos, but I just can’t be bothered speeding up and slowing down YouTube for podcasts, and it’s not that feasible at all for podcast clips on social media!

@ianRobinson though I do slow down podcasts that are music centric; if it ruins the music it’s not worth the time saved on speaking parts, especially where they’re discussing tone and tempo!
