On today’s episode of The Breakdown, we introduce the Breakdown Brief - a look at three key topics in bitcoin and crypto. Today, the Brief covers:

  • Brave browsers auto adding ref links to Binance.us
  • The disconnect between Wall Street and crypto when it comes to inflation expectations
  • A 2018 Pentagon war game including bitcoin 

Our featured interview is with Jake Hanrahan, founder of Popular Front - a podcast and independent media company covering underreported and irregular conflict with “no frills, no elitism.” Jake was previously an embedded reporter with Vice and has covered conflict in Turkey, Syria, Iraq, Palestine, Ukraine and elsewhere. 

In this conversation, Jake and NLW discuss:

  • Why Jake left Vice and decided to build an independent journalism project
  • Why the mainstream media isn’t bad because of some political conspiracy, but because its business model doesn’t allow it to understand how real people are experiencing issues 
  • How the protests are being (mis)covered around the world
  • Why American protests are going global
  • What he learned covering protests in Hong Kong last year 
  • What situations people should be paying attention to around the world that they’re not right now

“Shut the fuck up with your radical politics, and accept what people on the street are saying.”
— Jake Hanrahan

Location: Skype
Date: Friday, 20th March 2020
Company: Popular Front
Role: Journalist and filmmaker

Politics is more polarised than ever, is this just a reflection of society?

People tend to associate within closed communities, whether that be right or left-wing, libertarian or any other political or social group. With this, social media news feeds can become echo chambers, showing us tailored content which entrenches beliefs.

With this constant reassurance are we missing the nuance in the news? Are we losing objectivity with opinions that differ from ours?

What does this mean for journalism? Have we killed nuanced debate?

In this interview, I talk to Jake Hanrahan, Journalist, Filmmaker and the founder of Popular Front. We discuss navigating misinformation, peoples political and social bias and finding the nuance in news.

The backbone of any resistance is love for your people and home

There are risk takers, and then there’s Jake Hanrahan. He immerses himself in the most dangerous corners of the world as the founder of Popular Front – an independent, member funded conflict journalism collective. In this episode, Jake shares his extensive experience covering irregular warfare. We discuss hard hitting topics including: the dangers and strengths of tribes and religions, tactics guerrilla fighters have to fight off superior forces, gun ownership in Europe, the true causes of school shootings, how the demise of families and society lead to violence, and the fallout of technology and “cancel culture”.

The Rise of Independent Journalism | Jake Hanrahan

Everybody is just going like, Hang on, I'm sick of this. I'm sick of being told what to think. I'm sick of having a fucking political spin on everything."
Jake Hanrahan

The internet has transformed traditional media with newsgroups becoming reliant on advertising as readers are reluctant to pay for news online.

The advertising model has led to the rise of clickbait news organisations such as Buzzfeed, with content and headlines designed for sharing and reach. Some argue that this has led to an increase in fake news, something Andreas M. Antonopoulos explained in his talk Fake News, Fake Money talk.

The algorithms used by social media companies are also under scrutiny, with people questioning how much power do platforms such as Facebook have in shaping opinion? Can these algorithms drive a specific political agenda? Can a malicious actor weaponise these platforms and create and target news to manipulate opinion?

A perfect storm of bloated unprofitable news organisations and an increase in distrust of mainstream news is leading to a rise in independent journalism. Anyone with a phone can now record a podcast, make a video and build a following on social media, with people like Joe Rogan now able to draw in viewer numbers higher than prime time TV shows.

These independent journalists are free from the constraints of mainstream media and able to deliver authentic news with a higher level of trust. In this interview, I talk with Jake Hanrahan, a journalist, filmmaker and the founder of Popular Front. I find out why Jakes believes that increasing subjectivity in mainstream media is leading to the rise of independent journalism.

Episode brief:

A conversation with independent journalist and documentary filmmaker Jake Hanrahan, about his experiences as an irregular warfare correspondent for outlets such as ViceNews, HBO, Bellingcat and the Guardian, as well as his current project – grassroots media outlet, Popular Front.

Jake has reported from places as close home as Northern Ireland, and as far as Peru, having also provided coverage of multiple Balkan and Middle Eastern conflict affairs.

Popular Front, which he is the founder of, and driving force behind, is supported on a subscription model basis, through its Patreon profile.

Aside from that, Jake is also currently holding an Indiegogo campaign, under the title Popular Front 10K, with the aim of being able to purchase much needed new equipment, and compensate PF contributors financially.

Note: The episode is not safe for work, as it contains some explicit language, as well as references to sexual violence.
