As I have been consuming podcasts at a ravenous pace since last summer, I’ve always wanted the ability to throw in markers for significant thoughts so that I could come back to them later. How cool would it be to have a mechanism to throw in personal bookmarks throughout a ‘cast. Perhaps even to the point that if your MP3 player of choice had voice recording capability that you could have your own thoughts embedded within that podcast as a margin note.
Yeah, that’s the ticket.

I know it does it for some files it identifies as audiobooks, but how do I make it do this for ones I want to control. This part is merely the difference between an AAC with a .m4a and a .m4b extension. Though making a change like this to a pile of files could still be cumbersome.
You can solve both of these problems by grabbing a couple AppleScript’s – Join Together and Make Bookmarkable."
