Quick List of Things to Consider for a Podcast

Just a quick list of things to consider should you want to explore the possibility of doing a quality podcast. I have done limited podcasting in the past and am far from an expert. However, I have some interest in juicing up the mics for a new recruiting podcast, but I don’t want to go in half-ass. Here are just some details, as part of a master outline. I’ll take the following and nail down even finer details. I thought this could also help other exploring the idea. Sure, you can get a web host, fire up a built in mic, hit record, upload and call it a day, but this post is for someone to consider other details. I hope you find it helpful and get you thinking.
