Norman Pattiz, chairman of PodcastOne, launched “Beyond The Darkness” in late 2016 with the help of other major players in the radio/podcast industry. This new advertiser-sponsored show is hosted by no-strangers-to-the-otherworld radio personalities, Dave Schrader and Tim Dennis.
It explores the paranormal where experts in the field are featured discussing all aspects of the things that scare and mystify us. They invite believers and skeptics to listen to their talks about “ghosts, ghouls, angels, demons, aliens, monster encounters, mysteries and miracles.”
This podcast was announced in a press release in December of 2016. The show will be on WWE wrestler Chris Jericho’s already popular podcast network. The Jericho Network operates under the PodcastOne umbrella and offers a very diverse group of podcasts featuring several well-known comedians.
New episodes of “Beyond The Darkness” are available for listening on Monday nights. These frightful and informative discussions are available for your listening “pleasure” on PodcastOne.com, the PodcastOne app and iTunes.

Bloomberg said that Norman Pattiz is a radio giant. Not only has he worked in radio for decades, he recognized that this new form of on-demand listening, the podcast, would soar, so he decided to create PodcastOne in 2012. And of course it did. But long before that Pattiz was recognized for his ability to hone in on what people want or need to hear.
He was involved in so much of what has been broadcast on public radios for decades, remember radios? In 2000 he began serving on the Broadcasting Board of Governors of the United States of America through appointments by Presidents Clinton and Bush.
The Board administers foreign nonmilitary services such as Radio Free Europe, The Voice of America, Middle East Broadcasting and Radio Liberty, to name a few. Plus he conceived America’s Arabic language broadcasting which reaches over 40 million people.
According to Fortune, in 2009 Norman Pattiz became a National Hall of Fame inductee and was given the Giants of Broadcasting Award by the Library of American Broadcasting.
Pattiz says he’s “never had a bad job,” offers advice on growing a business to “be the first one in… and the last one out at night” and says he wouldn’t change anything about how he’s handled his career and businesses. He does have a history of making good choices. “Beyond The Darkness” is probably another one. Chris Jericho says he fully expects it to be “…a podcast network’s dream…or should I say nightmare!?”
