Norman Pattiz, Founder and Executive Chairman of PodcastOne, is taking a journey of the supernatural kind in with the new podcast Beyond the Darkness. Researchers and witnesses of eerie happenings will come together on the Chris Jericho podcast network to engage in discussions on ghosts, demons, monsters, aliens, and mysters too bizarre to explain.
The Jericho Network seems a solid fit for this show, Pattiz noted. In the time Chris Jericho’s shows have been on PodcastOne the coverage has reached well beyond the world of professional wrestling, creating an ever-expanding audience of listeners.
Jericho seems equally excited, stating that hosts Dave Schrader and Tim Dennis, known names in the world of paranormal coverage and commentary, will undoubtedly bring more listeners to the Jericho Network with Beyond the Darkness while continuing to broaden the type of content they have on offer.
Beyond the Darkness will be hosted by David Schrader and Tim Dennis, releasing every Monday on PodcatOne, made available on their app and through iTunes.
