What's the best way to cite a podcast using BibTeX, to match the Chicago Manual of Style?

My guesses are: online, misc, audio, music.

It's a recorded lecture, if that matters.

  series={Podcast audio},

}

gets me almost there, although the letter "p" in "podcast audio" should be lowercase in note and uppercase in bibliography; this does uppercase in both.

  • I guess I'll take it, as it's the closest to correct I've been able to get.

  • Is there a way to specify a specific time range within a podcast in the citation, or a preferred way of stating that in the text? (Ex: from 5:20-5:55). I'd like to cite the same podcast at different points in time. Apr 17 '18 at 3:10
  • why not @misc @audio?

  • If the capitalisation of "podcast audio" is an issue, series={\autocap{p}odcast audio}, may help, but that will depend on the exact style and other factors (probably beyond the scope of this general question).
