If a podcast episode is hosted by a guest host, how do I include the regular host’s name in my work-cited-list entry?
Note: This post relates to content in the eighth edition of the MLA Handbook. For up-to-date guidance, see the ninth edition of the MLA Handbook.
You should not include the regular host’s name in the work-cited-list entry. Include the guest host’s name in the “Author” slot of the entry, since that is the host of the particular episode you are citing:
Bianculli, David, host. “Margo Price.” Fresh Air, Podcasts app, 31 Jan. 2019.
