Jake Hanrahanis creating independent conflict journalism with Popular Front
Access Patreon only bonus episodes + early access to documentaries
For the price of one coffee a month, you can get loads more Popular Front. The bonus episodes cover all sorts, from speaking to a Russian jihadist in Syria, to hearing what it's like inside an Azov Battalion summer camp. You'll also get to see our video work first.
You'll get narrated versions of articles I've written that would come under the umbrella of Popular Front. You'll also get the bonus episodes and the normal episodes before anyone else. You'll be invited to join the Popular Front chat server on Discord (message me for the invite).
About Jake Hanrahan
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.
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.
