'Time-compressed speech'

Have you noticed Elliot Ness talking faster than a junior high cheerleader? It’s not your brain slowing down, it’s the show you’re watching, speeding up. It’s called "time-compressed speech.” It’s a method that dates back to the 1970s that lets you speed up the spoken word without changing the pitch so you don’t sound like Alvin and the Chipmunks. Speeding up the program allows more commercials to come your way. Thank you so much.
