My husband did some more research and corrected the problem. Here's what was happening:
When you play podcasts, and you're in the "now playing" screen that's a translucent black, shows volume, where you're at in the podcast, etc. In the upper right corner of this screen, there is a little white box that says "1x". Touching this box will allow you to change the speed of the podcast (I guess some people are such avid podcast listeners, that it saves them time to listen to it faster). I had coincidentally and unknowingly changed the speed of the podcast to "1.1x" which just made it sound funny, not faster.
He changed it back to "1x", and everything is now hunky dory! But thanks for the new phone, Apple! Just wanted to clear that up. Sorry for the confusion.
