About Jake Hanrahan

Popular Front is conflict journalism done differently. We report on the parts of war big media rarely acknowledges, and talk to people they'll never find. We don't have corporate bugmen trying to dictate what we do either. This is all independent, thanks to everyone here on the Patreon. 

This was started by me, Jake Hanrahan, after I got sick of seeing conflict journalism ring-fenced by tired out big media traditionalism. Popular Front is not interested in any of the posturing. We're trying to create something new and fresh. It's detailed, niche, and for everyone. You don't need a PhD or an invite to a journo dinner party to be in on this. We do serious work, but we don't take ourselves too seriously.

First, we started with the podcast. If you want to know how suicide car bombs are built by ISIS, which eco-extremists are launching attacks, or hear directly from the people fighting on the frontlines in Syria, this podcast is for you.


We've now grown into a proper grassroots conflict journalism platform. We're doing documentaries, news dispatches, articles, and building a community.

We're building a new culture around conflict reporting, one where you don't feel embarrassed to ask a question. We're also riding against the wave of manufactured outrage and "cancel culture" that's currently eating away at the media. We don't particularly care who's offended by what.

If you like the sound of this, support Popular Front.
Goals
55% complete
If we end up hitting this then we'll start doing the Popular Front Video Magazine (PFVM), a quarterly video release with on-the-ground news reporting, documentaries, raw footage, graphic explainers, and more.
