In the past few months, the spoiler research carried out by Benjamin Johnson and myself has been featured in a number of publications. In August 2019, our research was featured on two local TV stations in Maine. You can find the stories here. In May 2019, Thrive featured our work in a story on spoiler stress and television enjoyment. In April, Allison Eden from Michigan State University spoke about our work into horror fans and spoilers on an episode of The Frank Beckman Show. In that same month, I also spoke to MTV about the impact spoilers can have on enjoyment, while Forbes published a three-part series featuring findings my work with Benjamin Johnson as well as the work I have been doing with Morgan Ellithorpe from MSU and Sarah Brookes from SUNY Geneseo. You can find the three separate parts here, here, and here.
