The Founder and Executive Chairman of PodcastOne, Norman Pattiz, has revealed the introduction of WWE star Scott “Raven” Levy’s new weekly podcast show “The Raven Effect”. PodcastOne is the United States largest advertising-support podcast network. The new show will feature on the Under the Jericho Network which is hosted by Chris Jericho, also of WWE fame. “The Raven Effect” will involve discussions that Levy will have about politics, current events, pop culture, conspiracy theories, and a range of other topics. Scott Levy will carry these discussions with friends, enemies, people who are knowledgeable about subjects covered during the show, and others who don’t know anything at all. The hour-long show will have new episodes available every Monday that will be available on PodcastOne.com and the PodcastOne app.

He expects the show will be yet another hit for the Jericho Network. This network, which launched in 2016, has a number of wrestling focused shows as well as some that focus on the paranormal such as “Beyond the Darkness”.
