It is important to cite podcasts in your work in order to give due credit to the scholars, activists or thinkers who originally conducted the research, made a specific argument or used those particular case studies. Citations are also a useful resource in case those who engage with your work wish to pursue a line of argument or analysis further.
There are various ways to cite a podcast in academia and the one you need to use will depend on your academic institution. Below, are examples of how you can cite our podcast using the Harvard system.
