Podcasting is unloading playlists from (usually) iPod like devices
and the station plays those lists. Effectively the listeners are
providing the playlists.

Streaming is distribution of signal over an IP network.

Essentially, one has nothing to do with the other.

Podcasting could have been done by listeners sending postcards
to the station giving a hour's worth of music they would like
played and the order in which they would like the music played.
The stations would pick lists they liked (or at least did not
mind) and build their station playlists that way.
