APA style suggests that a website be referenced like this:

Author, A. (date). Title of document [Format description]. Retrieved from http://xxxxxxxxx

More information can be found at the APA quick reference guide entry on websites.


By Q&A, I assume you mean an interview you've read online or in a magazine and not conducted yourself. This blog post does a good job answering how to cite an interview in APA style.

Finally, if you’ve simply read an interview conducted by someone else, you should pick the reference format appropriate for the source. If you read the interview in a magazine, for example, you’d want to follow Example 7 (“Magazine article”) on p. 200.

The example on p. 200 that the author speaks of is:

Clay, R. (2008, June). Science vs. ideology: Psychologists fight back about the misuse of research. Monitor on Psychology, 39(6). Retrieved from http://www.apa.org/monitor

So your interview, if it did come from an online magazine or website, would take a similar format -- Author (Year). Title. Magazine or website name. Retrieved from website URL.
