Obviously podcasts end, but streams also had a start and will end when someone switches it off.
Streams are files that you missed the begining of, and leave before it finishes.
The data format is arbitrary.

Here is the mp3 stream for my local radio station

If you try saving it, you will have to decide when to stop.

The main problem is as I say, almost nobody serves media vis HTTPS, only the site content.
Finding any HTTPS streams or media will be a problem.
I just chanced that soundcloud have the certificate set to include the subdomains.

First find any radio station that uses HTTPS, and serves the files from the same domain or sudomain.
Then you can use an HTTPS stream.

When it fails after manually adding an S, it is because the site does not have a valid certificate.
