The Popular Front podcast focuses on the niche details of modern warfare and under-reported conflicts. 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 assault rifles, this podcast is for you. It's detailed, nuanced, and uncensored.

There's no frills, no elitism, no agenda—just warfare for anoraks.
