Distorted sound only when playing podcasts


When I play mp3's or stream radio stations through amarok/rhythmbox/... etc. the sound quality is fine.

However, if I listen to podcasts the sound is distorted -- lots of chirps and static.

I'm not sure how to begin to troubleshoot this. At what layer in the sound architecture does playing an mp3 differ from streaming a podcast?
