What will the rehearsal schedule be like?

How many actors will be cast?
I am looking for approximately 8 "series regulars" who will collectively devise the story, and voice the main characters.
I will also cast 4-6 "featured performers" who will devise and record the podcast intro, conclusion, two commercials, and will voice supporting characters in the podcast. These actors will have a more abbreviated rehearsal schedule.
All of this is flexible, however, depending on what happens at the auditions! I am looking to put together a team of diverse and creative individuals who will collaborate well and compliment each other's strengths.
What will the process be like?
We will begin with a lot of team-building exercises, followed by working through some brainstorming activities including writing prompts, movement exercises, etc. We will then move into some specific planning for the plot and characters, working toward creating a final version of the script. Once that is ready, we will rehearse the script, then record it! Then, it will go into post-production with our sound engineers.
How about crew?
Crew interviews will take place on Monday, September 21st, by appointment (on Google Meet).

I am looking for stage managers, scribes (to write down the script as it is being devised), audio editors and engineers, maybe composers?!, publicity artists (think graphic design), and foley artists (to create and record sound effects!) Have an idea for another position that you think would be helpful? Share it at the interview!
When will crew members need to attend rehearsals?
All of this, like everything, is my best guess at this moment, but is subject to change:
The stage managers would attend every rehearsal.
Scribes should be prepared to attend rehearsals the weeks of October 12th and 19th.
Composers, publicity artists, and foley artists would need to attend sporadically to get an idea of the story, and then work complete a lot of work independently.
Audio editors and engineers would work from the time the recording is complete (by November 10th) until the final product is ready for release (by November 26th).
