Simply a quality podcast! Covers a wide variety of extremely interesting, often barely covered, topics in a straightforward, no nonsense manner. Giving nuanced takes on hugely important geopolitical issues, to talking how terrorist groups are employing the latest technology, it’s all there. Jake Hanrahan is straight to the point, getting to the heart of the issues and selects guests who are clear experts in their field. Highly recommended!
LISTEN TO POPULAR FRONT
Popular Front is what has been missing.
Simply the best podcast in the conflict genre that I’ve heard. Covers a wide array of truly fascinating topics and does so in good depth.
Great quality from the very start, I’m excited to see where Popular Front goes.
Give it a listen.
