Proposed next steps:
You need to be the project owner to select a next step.
we suggest research to develop a demographic profile of the average consumer of content in the crime genre (films, television, documentaries, books, and podcasts). For this profile, we will provide One: Age, Two: gender, Three: income level, Four: educational level, and Five: race/ethinicity. If we are unable to find one or more of these demographic categories, we will substitute them with another such as marital status, occupation types, and/or family size. We also propose research to complete a psychographic profile of content in the crime genre (films, television, documentaries, books, and podcasts). For this profile, we will provide One: habits, Two: hobbies, Three: spending habits and Four: values. These psychographic categories will help provide a picture of the general interests of US residents who consume content in the crime genre (films, television, documentaries, books, and podcasts) If we are unable to find any of these psychographic categories, we will substitute them with another such as consumer attitudes, affinities, emotions, likes, or dislikes.
Additionally, we suggest research into the impact crime/true crime podcasts are having on the criminal justice system. We will look for 2-3 examples of when a podcast has helped solve a case or impacted or changed the outcome of a case (for example, proving someone convicted of the crime was actually innocent). For each, we will provide the name of the podcast, a description of the crime, the name(s) of the person who was the subject of the podcast, the location where the crime and trial occurred (state or city & state), and the outcome of the podcast (what impact did it have, what changed as a result of it).
