Are you afraid of the dark? Have you ever feared being abducted by aliens? Has a nightmare ever shot you out of bed in the middle of the night? Have you ever seen a shadowy figure that has left you trembling, fearful of where to plant your next step?
Well, we’ve got the podcast for you. It’s called, “Beyond Darkness,” and it’s all about UFOs and aliens, ghosts and goblins, demons and cherubs, miracles, spells, and death wishes. The podcast will be hosted by Dave Schrader and Tim Dennis. The two are veterans of the supernatural world and the podcast industry. Schrader comes to his post as a prominent author and radio host. Dennis, meanwhile, has led a long and successful career as a radio host.
The two will interview guests and debate experts on paranormal and otherworldly phenomena. The podcast will be part of the famed PodcastOne Network, the home of Chris Jericho’s podcast.
Jericho, a former WWE star, recently explained how thrilled he was to add the Beyond Darkness podcast to the PodcastOne roster. He did advise listeners to be cautious, however. They might start suffering nightmares, after all.
While Jericho might be a star of the network, the true inspiration of the network comes from another man who has long dominated his industry just as Chris Jericho has dominated the WWE ring: Norman Pattiz.
Pattiz, the original founder of the network, today serves as its Executive Chairman. In a recent statement to the media, he lauded Chris Jericho as the network’s MVP. He went on to say that the network’s goal was always to expand outside of the wrestling world, and develop a stranglehold on the podcast industry in general. That’s where Beyond Darkness, which will debut a new episode every Monday, comes into the picture.
Pattiz founded the network in 2012, after working in the radio industry for 40 years. His network has grown by leaps and bounds since it entered the fray. Today, it’s the country’s largest advertiser-supported podcast network. Aside from Jericho’s podcast, it also hosts those of such celebrities as Neil Strauss, Jay Mohr, and Dr. Drew, along with Adam Carolla.
Podcasts are much like radio shows and, long-term, the radio industry seems to be migrating over to podcasting. Unlike radio shows, listeners can download podcasts and listen to them whenever they want. The podcast hosts, moreover, have much greater freedom as to what they can discuss.
