Lectern vs Podium

I have a pet peeve where I hope this post will help stop the insanity.  Many people incorrectly state they stand behind a podium instead properly calling it a lectern.  A podium is a raised platform where someone stands on while a lectern is what someone stands behind.  I hope this helps rid the world of improperly calling lecterns as podiums!
