    Radio streams are live, podcasts are not.

    errr, well unless I'm misunderstanding you:
    Radio Stream - you listen to content that is streaming to your computer
    PodCast - you fully download a file of content to your HD (and/or transfer it to your iPod) and then play it back.

    Well that's the gist of it anyway..

    Of course you can use a tool like RadioRecorder to record streaming internet radio - basically turning your streaming radio into a podcast. :D

    It's a great way to grab shows that don't provide a downloadable format. I use it to listen to a number of NPR shows (e.g. "Car Talk", "Says You").
