According to PR Newswire, Norman Pattiz, the Founder and Chairman of PodcastOne announced the newest addition to its Jericho Network on December 19th. Beyond the Darkness will explore the paranormal with veteran paranormal radio hosts Dave Schrader, also an author, and radio producer Tim Dennis. New episodes are set to air every Monday on PodcastOne.com.
Norman Pattiz had only praise for Chris Jericho, WWE star and creator of the Jericho Network, saying that Jericho has ” distinguished himself as one of the jewels of the PodcastOne network.” Pattiz also says that they always knew the network would eventually expand past wrestling, delving into comedy and now the supernatural with it’s newest podcast.
Jericho is ” stoked (and a little creeped out)” to be adding Beyond the Darkness to his podcast network. Noting Dave Schrader and Tim Dennis’s extensive experience in broadcasting the paranormal, Jericho states ” 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!?”
