Weekly Fasting (Wednesday & Friday)

This is from the podcast Faith and Philosophy.

As seen from the website:
"Wednesdays and Fridays are fast days for Orthodox Christians. But, why do we observe this and what spiritual benefit is there?"

To be honest, I still don't know if the fasts are from sun up to sun down (about a 12 hour fast day), or if they are 24 hour fast days?

I know the ancient semetic world weren't strict on exact 24 hours days. But as far as the weekly fasts go, I never could really pin down the exact hour of when they begin and end. But then again.....sense it seems more like a personal practice........I guess it doesn't matter. Or does it?
