Have you tried WebVTT for marking up the subtitles? http://www.w3.org/community/texttracks/2012/08/23/webvtt-support-in-browsers/ http://ie.microsoft.com/testdrive/Graphics/CaptionMaker/ is a surprisingly good tool for making captions. You could also cheat a bit and use Youtube's pretty good voice recognition to perhaps save time transcribing.
Ordinarily, I'd create an Adobe AIR or AIR-for-iOS app to solve this problem. You'd just sychronize your captions to cue points in the video and make 'em visible or invisible with a programmed-in button. You could easily have multiple languages in this way. Are iTunes podcasts just flat-out mp4 movies?
