What is the difference between a Lectern, a pulpit and a podium?

Lectern, podium, rostrum and even pulpit are often used to describe our products. We use all three examples of these words in our website to attract the attention of people searching for either.

Technically, Lectern is the correct word to describe a piece of furniture with a sloping top to hold books or notes from which someone can read while standing up.
