On 2x, I have to pay attention or I'll miss something.
Listening to audio is significantly slower than reading, and often by the time the speakers get to describing the results, a lot of time has passed from when they described the context.
There's zero benefit from the former, and by losing efficient random access, you can no longer skim/skip/search for things. I wonder if there's any research to prove/disprove something like that?
