Bibliography for a podcast

Citations in a bibliography are formulated in a similar way to a footnote or endnote, but do have slight variations from the way a footnote or endnote is formulated.

Steinke, Darcy.  Interview with Sam Tanenhaus and Dwight Garner.  New York Times Book Review.  Podcast audio.  April 22,

  • In this case, the interview has no title, the way an article or book chapter does.  If the interview had a title, it would be included in parentheses in between Darcy Steinke's name (as interviewee) and Sam Tanenhaus and Dwight Garner's names (as interviewers).
