Marco Arment’s Forecast is a newly released (into a public beta) Mac MP3 encoding and tagging tool for podcasters. It’s a tool that Marco built a couple of years ago to serve his own needs, and for the last 18 months or so I’ve been using it (in a private beta) to encode most of the podcasts that I create. All the rest of Forecast is about tagging files to include things like the episode title, show art, and chapter data. When I export that project to a WAV file and import it into Forecast, the app automatically reads the markers and converts them into chapters. Forecast also tries to save you time by recognizing that similarly named source files are probably part of the same podcast, and attempting to intelligently autofill data based on that assumption.december 2017 by sechilds
