Citing podcasts

Podcasts cover a wide range of topics, can inspire research questions and can be a great source of information for a research paper.

To cite a podcast, it is important to include the following:

  1. The author’s name or company which posted the content
  2. The year of publication
  3. The episode’s title
  4. The podcast’s title

Based on the APA style guide, we recommend you use the following structure.

APA Podcast citation format:

Last name, initial OR corporate author (Year). Episode Title [Podcast]. Podcast Title.


  • Foley, A. (2020). Mr. Eastside [Podcast]. This American Life.
  • Gethard, C. (2020). A Bar Star Comes Out, Again [Podcast]. Beautiful Anonymous.
  • Dzotsi, E. (2020). The Least You Could Do [Podcast]. Reply All.
