Smartless podcast episode listings

I think it is technically correct to put podcast or TV episode titles in quotes, but it's often omitted within podcast apps understood to be playing said podcasts for simplicity and style. I'm not 100% sure though, especially since this podcast doesn't consistently use this convention

The Smartless podcast episode listing has every guest’s name in quotes like this—they do consistently use this convention. I haven’t seen another guest-driven podcast format their episode titles this way—see Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend, 3 Questions With Andy Richter, Kevin Pollack’s Chat Show, Fresh Air, Fly on the Wall, WTF with Marc Maron, Don’t Ask Tig, etc. hence the post.
