A new podcast, Beyond the Darkness, was recently announced by Norman Pattiz, the founder and executive chairman of PodcastOne, and will feature conversations with world-renowned researchers on a range of paranormal topics. The podcast will work to enlighten as well as challenge commonly held assumptions and beliefs regarding the mysteries behind subjects such as ghosts, angels, demons, aliens, and monsters.
The show is the newest on the successful podcast network of celebrity and WWE star, Chris Jericho, which falls under the umbrella of the larger PodcastOne. The show will be available on the PodcastOne website, the PodcastOne app, and iTunes, and new episodes will be released every Monday. Beyond the Darkness will be hosted by author Dave Schrader as well as radio producer Tim Dennis.
“Dave Schrader and Tim Dennis are at the top of the paranormal broadcasting otherworld and bring with them a massive fanbase who trust and believe in them and their subject matter.” Chris Jericho said, “I fully expect Beyond the Darkness will grow their already massive audience on The Jericho Network, and scare the crap out of them as they do it. They are a podcast network’s dream… or should I say nightmare?”
Regarding the new program, Norman Pattiz said, “Chris has distinguished himself as one of the jewels of the PodcastOne network. When he started The Jericho Network collection, we knew it would evolve beyond wrestling. He’s delivered comedians and now takes us into the paranormal with Beyond the Darkness.”
