The Founder and Executive Chairman of PodcastOne, Norman Pattiz, announced in a press release that the popular Jericho Network on the website will launch a new show, “Beyond the Darkness”. The Jericho Network is a popular network on PodcastOne that features Chris Jericho of WWE fame.
“Beyond the Darkness” will feature spooky mysteries, ghostly encounters, angels, demons, aliens, and other paranormal phenomena. The shows is meant to both educate and entertain listeners with conversations including notable researchers and people who say they have personally experienced these types of phenomena. The show will be hosted by radio host and author Dave Schrader and Tim Dennis, who is a radio producer and host. A new episode is scheduled to be released every Monday and will be available on the PodcastOne App, PodcastOne’s website, and iTunes.
When making the announcement Norman Pattiz said that Chris Jericho’s network has quickly become one of the most popular ones on PodcastOne. The network started out mostly focused on wrestling but, as Pattiz expected, it now has comedian podcasts and now a paranormal one.
Chris Jerricho stated that he’s really looking forward to the release of “Beyond the Darkness” on his network and will enjoy working with Dave Schrader and Tim Dennis as they’re some of the best in the business. Another bonus of bringing in Schrader and Dennis is that both radio hosts have massive fan bases that will add to the Jerricho Networks listening audience.
