Something missing

I have loved the previous Pimsleur audiobooks, it's supplementing my weekly Spanish class and I was learning it at a reasonably quick rate. But from the last tape with lesson 20, jumping to this tape with lesson 21, I'm lost. The speakers are different, they speak much more quickly and one of them almost mumbles. There are vocabulary words used that I don't know which have never been introduced. There is a "reading review" where it sounds like someone is reading numbered sentences, but I have no text to follow. Also, I always listen in the car so this is worthless even if I had the text. Listening to this lesson over and over again, I've started to be able to follow along, but it is a lot of work. I'm not sure why the format changed so much, the previous lessons worked much better for me as a new Spanish learner.
