Cheap trick Friday: Podcast speed

Time is money, right?

When my sister-in-law suggested I start listening to podcasts at 1.5 speed, I reacted in the way that I always do to good advice: I scoffed. I am not the kind of person who is so busy that I can’t just mindfully listen and let life unfurl at a regular speed. I am zen!

Except I’m not zen and once I tried it, I can’t go back. Like really can’t go back. Like went forward instead, and I currently listen to most podcasts on double speed instead of 1.5.

There are some drawbacks. When I get a robot on the phone asking me to press 1 to talk to a nurse I want to rip my eyeballs out. Sometimes when I accidentally listen to a podcast on regular speed I wonder why the host is so sad.

But here are the benefits: twice as many podcasts. Twice. Ads are no big deal because they are over in like 5 seconds. Time is money money is time, I am getting rich on information.
