Podcasts on slow speed?

I have a brand new 8 gig Fuze and I notice something weird.  The podcasts I downloaded are playing at half, or some fraction thereof, speed and so sound slowed down.  Has anyone else encountered this problem?  Is there a fix or should I return the **bleep** thing?


by default the playspeed for podcasts is set to slow. just click the submenu button (bottom of the scroll wheel) and set the speed to normal.
