Sporadic implies scattered, irregular, unpredictable, or isolated instances: spies who could manage only sporadic contact. Intermittent describes something that stops and starts, often with no discernable pattern: heard intermittent gunfire in the distance. What is occasional happens randomly and irregularly: a retired celebrity still making occasional appearances in public.
