    Can't Play KQED Podcasts?

    I've run into a really weird problem with BeyondPod. I subscribe to about 12 different podcasts and the only ones I'm having a problem with are provided by KQED (a local NPR station), they are "Forum" and "The California Report". What's weird is the initial NPR "this program is supported by..." ad for these podcasts will play fine, and then as soon as the actual content starts to play it sounds like the track is playing at 50x normal and it finishes in about 2 seconds.

    I'm connecting to these podcasts through feedly, and if I listen to the podcast on feedly's site it plays fine. This recently started happening with the new BeyondPod update. I've tried enabling/disabling the playback speed feature and haven't seen a difference. Any ideas? Thanks.

    What device and Android version are you using?
    What are the URLs for the podcasts you're having problems with? (If you edit the feed, the URL is the first thing you see)

    The ones we've tried work as expected. Could you give us some examples of actual episodes that fail for you.

    Does it make any difference whether you download the episodes to play, or stream them?

    I have had the same problem with the KQED Forum podcast since I started listening on my LG Optimus P9.
    The same mp3 works fine on every other device I've checked.
    It also fails in the same way when played by other software (Player Pro) on the phone- LG P76920h
    The evidence says that it's the phone. My guess is that the podcast's editing software is introducing a glitch that is almost universally ignored- except by the LG phone.
    I'll write to the show and suggest that they upgrade their editing software.
