NOTE: This FAQ has been updated to the 7th edition. 

The proper way to cite podcasts and podcasts episodes can be found on page 345 of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (7th ed.). If the URL of a podcast isn't known because it was accessed via an app, omit the URL. The host is the author and make sure to specify the type of podcast (audio or video) in brackets. If the podcast episode doesn't have an episode number you can omit that piece of information.
