Can’t keep up with all the podcasts you’ve subscribed to? PodShifter helps you get through more by speeding up the broadcasts.

Using the service is simple: enter the RSS address of a specific broadcast, select a speed, and PodShifter spits out a revised RSS feed (and a one-click iTunes link) that gives you access to a sped-up version. Obviously that won’t work with entertainment-centric podcasts such as music or comedy, but for lectures and other information-heavy content, it can be a useful trick. PodShifter is a free service, works on any RSS feed (though we found performance entering addresses a bit variable).
