Referencing podcasts

We recently had a few queries around how to reference a podcast.  The first question to ask yourself is this a reliable source and good enough for your needs.  If you are happy it is and want to include in your assignment then here is how you would reference in the APA 6th style.

Try to include as must information as possible, and follow the same principle as for other resource – Who, When, What  and Where. The Who in a podcast might be the speaker, the producer or the writer.
Author Surname, First Initial. (Producer). (Year, Month Day). Title of podcast [Audio podcast]. Retrieved
            from URL

So in practice it would look like this in the reference list:

Cohen, S. (Speaker). (2015, September 29). Alzheimer’s is not normal aging and we can cure it [Audio podcast]. Retrieved from

(Note that the URL is the homepage URL where you found the podcast)

If you have any questions let us know
