Another important aspect is to keep your voice ready for a recording session, keep the tone of the voice according to the format and structure of the podcast.
Choose a podcast host:

Hosting a podcast on your website can be tricky as it can make the loading of your website pages lousy and lethargic. Though if it is necessary for the business needs, many CMS tools like WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, etc. Provide podcast hosting on your website.
Or else you can go for external podcast hosting service providers like Transistor, Captivate, Simplecast, Castos, Podbean, etc. that can help you host your podcast and you can link it back to your website.
Review the recording:
Review your recording for any possible errors of pronunciation, any missed points, any sound or voice low pitch. Note down each of these before hosting the Podcast.
