Chapter Markers

Chapter markers can make it easy for your listeners to navigate your podcast, see what's coming up, or skip over spoilers they don't want to hear. More and more podcast apps are supporting chapter markers and Buzzsprout makes it simple for you to add chapters markers to each of your podcasts episodes.

Adding chapter markers is important to do before your episode is live since chapter markers are being added to the actual audio file. Once an episode is live and listeners have downloaded the file to their device they will most likely not receive any future chapter updates.
