I'm a journalist who reports on war and conflict, from Iraq, Ukraine, Kurdistan and more. I believe journalism is in a crisis. AMA
I'm a journalist and documentary filmmaker based in the UK. I cover conflict, crime, & politics. I've worked for HBO, VICE News, Esquire, ProPublica, The Guardian, & more.
I've reported from the frontlines in Iraq, southeast Turkey, Ukraine, Palestine. I'm best known for covering militia forces (which once landed me in prison on "terrorist" charges). I love journalism, but now find myself totally disillusion with the industry.
Anyway, let's chat.

Thank you all so much for the comments. It was really fun to do this and interact with you all. I really enjoy the discussion. It's nearly 1am here in the UK though and I've been doing this for hours. I'll go to bed now. If you want to keep in touch the best way is on my Twitter: https://twitter.com/Jake_Hanrahan
Also, I'll be launching my podcast (it's about the niche details of modern warfare--proper geeky shit) properly next month, so give it a subscribe if it sounds like something you'd be into (one episode is up already): https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/popular-front/id1364539980?mt=2 (it's available on all podcast networks)

Thanks again everyone. I might do this maybe as a live stream or something in the future if people are interested. Seemed to get a good response. For now though, good night.
