What is The Difference Between a NetCast and Podcast?

I was on a site and they have netcasts instead of podcasts. What is the difference?

There is no difference. Apple had attempted to "protect" the term "pod" and filed suits against a few companies that were using the term podcast in their company name, as a result some companies coined the term netcast to replace the term podcast. Most feel that there is little basis for Apple's lawsuits and that the term podcast and podcasting cannot be trademarked or protected.

The term netcast has not been widely adopted but it is safe to assume it is synonymous with the term podcast. It is likely that the term podcast and podcasting will remain the more popular terms.
