Notes-Bibliography Style


  • In most cases, you can cite podcasts only in notes. Include them in your bibliography only if they are critical to your argument or frequently cited.
  • To cite a podcast, locate as much of the following information as possible: name of the creator or host, title of the episode and podcast, date it was recorded. Also include an access date and URL. 
  • Include a short description in brackets after the title.
  • Give the creator's name exactly as listed, even if it is clearly a pseudonym. If the creator's real name can be easily determined, include it in square brackets.
