Popular Front is conflict journalism done differently. I'm Jake Hanrahan and I started this platform because the media is up the wall right now. Editors are becoming more interested in sneery political mud-slinging for clicks than they are reporting on the nitty-gritty of what's going on. That's not what journalism is about. 

Popular Front is not interested in any of that nonsense. We're trying to create something new and fresh. We're focused on the niche details of modern warfare, giving you detailed unreported information about war in every format possible. There's no frills, no elitism, no agenda—just warfare for anoraks. There will be no corporate vampires telling us what "normal people" want and there will be no censorship. 

First, we've started with the podcast. If you want to know how suicide car bombs are built by ISIS, which paramilitary factions are operating in Syria, or why American militias hoard machine guns, this podcast is for you.


The ultimate goal is to eventually produce independent documentaries, news dispatches, and a video series for Popular Front. I want the podcast to sprout many arms, with all of them focussed on the same sorts of topics, and with as much granular detail too.

We're creating a new subculture and a new way of looking at conflict reporting. No stiffness, no elitism, no agenda.
