I have tried for about two months now to slow down the playing speed of my podcasts in Apple Podcasts on iPhone 6S (iOS 12.4.1) and have had no luck. It always used to be the correct speed until one day podcasts started playing so fast you could barely understand them and they have never slowed down since.
I use VoiceOver and however much I turn the VoiceOver speed down it doesn't effect the podcast playing speed.
Any suggestions for how to fix this as I would like to be able to listen to podcasts again using Apple Podcasts? I cannot see a speed control anywhere.
