Does live radio streaming drain the battery faster than playing a pod cast?

Today I thought I had a full charge, listened to the radio for about 40 minutes, and then found the phone pratically drained. I have done all the battery saving techniques that I've learned about, including turning off apps running in the background, turning on limit ad tracking, and turning off location based i-ads, Should I confine myself to podcasts because pulling in a signal requires more power??
