I guess I read fairly quickly, so when I first started listening to podfic I had trouble listening to slow podficcers. I've since learned to accept a slower pace, and it doesn't bother me like it once used to.
But I know what you mean about being unable to rewind easily. I can't listen to podfic if I'm doing anything that requires me to think at all, because I loose the thread of the story. Not even email, or driving somewhere new. I have very specific times I can enjoy it, but I'm so glad that it exists.
That's funny you say you edit when you read - I think I may do that a tiny bit, but I hadn't really thought of it until you mentioned it. Or maybe not edit, so much as skim through bits that are slow...
I have the same trouble sometimes with very visual fics in audio form, and sometimes I wonder if I'm just not getting the story, or if the format just doesn't work. On the whole, though, I find I'm able to process a lot of the visual stuff with a good podficcer. The poetry in my ear thing, though, I definitely get.
Podfic has made me think more about how I structure the words I write, if they would be readable out loud or not.
