Wrong times on ESPN podcasts

I've noticed that, for ESPN podcasts (BS Report, Grantland Sports, etc.), the displayed time in the episode list is inconsistent with the actual length of the episode, which displays in the playback bar on the bottom. For example, I see one with a length of 60:10, but the file is 59:03. Another says 55:60 (which doesn't make sense to begin with) but is actually 55:00. This has no ill effects on actually listening to shows or using anything in the application, but it's nonetheless an odd problem and I thought I'd mention it.

I'm using the latest version of DC on a Galaxy Nexus, Android 4.2.1.

Wrong Times

I think happens because the publisher puts incorrect times on their servers for the episode lengths
It's Eric's to do list to the get the duration from the media file http://mantis.snoggdoggler.com/view.php?id=1391

Yep, wayne's right. The

Yep, wayne's right. The duration near the episode in DC comes from the publisher. The duration in the media controls comes from the android media player. Not sure which one is right though.
