February 4, 2017 at 1:45PM • 60 minutes

Is it inherently bad to speed up audio, listening at up to three times the speed it was originally recorded at? If not, why do so many people take issue with it and, if so, why do people keep doing it? This week, we'll try to figure that out.

But we're officially back and ready to deliver regular episodes with a new, simpler format that keeps the Supercharged spirit but focuses on exploring the answer to a pressing question surrounding the nexus of technology and our lives. This week, however, we're just going on one long series of tangents so you can get to know Supercharged's new co-host, Tommy Honton. We're excited to be back!
