Q. How do I cite a podcast episode in APA 7th edition?


You'll find information on how to cite all different kinds of audiovisual media in Chapter 10 of the APA Style Manual 7th edition. Here are some general guidelines.

General Format for a Podcast Episode:

Author, A.A. (Host). (Date). The episode name (No. 123) [Audio podcast]. In The podcast name. Production Company, https://www.episodeurl.com


Gladstone, B. (Host). (2019, Nov. 22). The disagreement is the point [Audio podcast]. In On the media, WNYC. https://www.wnycstudios.org/podcasts/otm/episodes/on-the-media-2019-11-22.


As you cite keep the following tips in mind:

  • The host of the podcast should be listed as the author. Alternatively, you can provide the producer(s), if known
  • If the episode number is available include if after the title in parentheses
  • If the URL of the podcast is unknown or access via an app (e.g. Spotify or Apple Podcasts) don't include the URL
