Kunstformen der Natur (1904) by Ernst Haeckel
For the 2004 film directed by Yann Moix, see Podium (film).
  1. A platform on which to stand, as when conducting an orchestra or preaching at a pulpit
  2. A stand used to hold notes when speaking publicly

Usage notes

  • Some people object to the "stand for holding notes" sense on the grounds that, because of its etymology, "podium" ought to refer to something that is stood upon (or that at least pertains to the feet in some way).
