I learned a ton from Antranik in this broad conversation.
Anyway, since I discovered this hack I’d gotten very comfortable listening at 1.5X, which sounds like the speakers are incredibly eloquent even after 6 cups of coffee. But then a couple of weeks ago I started experimenting with 2X speed, and when I found out that my new friend, Matthew, does that exclusively, I had to make the switch. Otherwise he wins.
Okay, yes, it will sound like people on amphetamines speaking very demonstratively at first. But your brain will quickly adapt, I promise. Consider how many more books you could read if you 2Xed your reading speed. Now you don’t have to.
