Overdrive audiobook command line access

For the past few years I've used Overdrive via the Seattle Public Library to download audiobooks for free rather than pay a monthly subscription to Amazon for an Audible membership.

Using some pretty clunky software from Overdrive, it was (until recently) possible to download DRM free MP3 files of audiobooks which I then would add to my Plex server and listen to while running or swimming.

With OS X 10.15 Catalina requiring all software to be 64-bit however, Overdrive decided to discontinue audiobook download support for Mac in lieu of updating their software to be compliant with newer versions of OS X.

While initially I was a bit frustrated that I'd need to use a Windows machine to continue accessing audiobooks, I stumbled a across an awesome shell script authored by Chris Brown which lets you download full audiobooks and cover art from Overdrive from the command line.

Having used this download method a few times now, I far prefer it both in ease of use and in robustness to Overdrive's now defunct Mac software. It's always so awesome to see people find creative solutions to problems like this.
