The Radio and Plasma Wave Science (RPWS) investigation on the Cassini spacecraft provides measurements of radio emissions, plasma waves, and thermal plasma parameters in the vicinity of Saturn. This paper gives an overview of recent results from the RPWS. These include the most recent measurements of the rotational modulation period of radio emissions from Saturn (Saturn Kilometric Radiation), of impulsive radio bursts from atmospheric lightning (Saturn Electrostatic Discharges), of the distribution of small dust particles near the ring plane, and of the distribution and origin of plasma in the inner regions of the Saturnian system and near Titan.
