This is an unfortunate & rare use-case.. WordPress supports  
URL/<feed_type>/ url's as well as URL/feed/<feed_type>/, and as you've  
found out, the first takes higher priority over looking for <feed_type> as  
a category.

My only real suggestion to you would be to change the 'podcast' slug to  
something else such as 'podcasts' (You can change the Slug and the Name  
seperately, it only affects the URL).

It would be possible to filter the Rewrite rules and remove the rules  
which add the functionality if you were desperate enough for it to work  
like that..
