    FYI there’s a setting in Settings/Player called Playback “speed factor” which allows to select how much of the current playback speed is applied when you listen through a loud speaker. For example, I set this at 33%.
    This means that the podcast set to 2.5x is played at 2.5x only when listening with a headset (wired or BT). Otherwise the app will play at 1.5×. Once you enable this, you won’t have to change the playback speed based on the environment. The app will do it for you

    @Xavier, that does not solve my scenario. My "environment" is related to the people around me, and location, not the speaker I am using.

    If people are in the car with me I want 1x speed.
    If I am alone in the car I might want 1.5x.
    If I am in the shower I want 1.3x speed (or 1x if I am with other people).
    Otherwise I want whatever speed I have configured for the individual podcast.

    Xavier, we are asking for a temporary global override. I have variable speed individually configured for many podcasts, but when my friend gets in the car I want all podcasts to playback at 1x speed. When he gets out of the car I want to revert to my normal speed.

    A global speed option that's easy to access, because I'm in the car. This actually solves quite a few similar requests.

    I hunted high and low, and found http://www.bluesoleil.com who have a Bluetooth stack that lets you "pair" your phone with your Windows Computer, and treat it like a speaker. It even gives you playback controls so you can pause and skip tracks from the PC. It costs money, but works well and is reliable.

    It solved the "able to listen to podcast on a computer & keep the podcast sync with android device" problem for me -- and Xavier had to write no code :-)
