Following a discussion on Twitter a few weeks ago, Jeff Porten shared with me an AppleScript he uses to listen to podcasts on his Mac at faster or slower speed. The script lets you choose a playlist, then choose whether you want to listen at 75% or 150% of the normal speed. It then opens the podcasts in QuickTime Player and plays them.
It’s a nifty script, and if you like to speed up podcasts on your Mac, as you may do on an iOS device, this makes it easier to do so. It’s a bit more sophisticated than the script in this hint from 2006, as it can keep going through a playlist.
