I have this same problem with music. It is harder to distinguish the words
from the music. With words only, I do better. But I also have been working
vehicle-free in DC, using public transportation. This has given me about an
hour a day total to listen to podcasts. At first I missed items and had to
rewind the play. After a while I learned to pay attention and not let my
mind wander. I also built up my speed over time. It wasn't as easy as
reading at first.

I have watched a whole movie this way, but it was a monster movie with less
amount and complexity in the speaking. I have also watched subtitled films
this way, where I could read the text faster than the speech.
