All these years....
...and I didn't know about the multitool. I've needed that forever!
I am curious, why 24-bit flac? HPR shows being (mostly) mono, voice recordings don't typically need that kind of encoding. I know that you are going to convert to ogg, mp3, speex and possibly opus, but still a 16-bit input file should be more than adequate in 99.999 percent of the cases. Only when music is involved might it be necessary to use 24-bit, but even then, unless the source is recorded @ 24-bit it's really un-necessary.
Also, I was surprised there was no effort made to do noise removal, or level the tracks. I frequently notice level differences between the intro/outro and main recordings, levelling could go a long way to helping with that.

Because for Archive.org will get the flac and they can then encode it from the best possible encoding available to us, to whatever new format comes along.
Feel free to take a look at the encoding script and modify it as you desire.
