Q. How do I cite a podcast episode using the APA format?
If you are citing a podcast episode using APA, use the following basic format:
Last name of executive producer or host, First initial of first name. Second Initial if given. (Executive Producer or Host). (Date of publication). Title of podcast episode (No. episode number) [Audio podcast episode]. In Title of podcast. Production company. URL if applicable
Macmanus, P. (Executive Producer). (2018, September 25). Closure (No. 6) [Audio podcast episode]. In Dr. death. Wondery. https://wondery.com/shows/dr-death/
Koenig, S. (Host). (2014, October 3). The alibi (No. 1) [Audio podcast episode]. In Serial. WBEZ Chicago. https://serialpodcast.org
Note: If you used an app like Spotify or Apple Podcasts, you do not need to include the URL.
For in-text citations, use the timestamp in place of page number in your citation for direct quotations.
