The Comebacks

Gelf's podcasters get back in the saddle.

Michael Myser and Merrill Freund

In Gelf Magazine's weekly podcast, The Hack and The Flack, journalist Michael Myser—the hack—and PR guru Merrill Freund—the flack—break down the news of the week. From their different perspectives, Michael and Merrill discuss sports, tech, and media—much like Gelf.

In this week's episode, Michael and Merrill revel in Lance Armstrong's comeback, say that no amount of cosmetics can make the McCain campaign's latest tactic anything but a pig, ask what's up with those Jerry Seinfeld-Bill Gates ads, learn about a friend's engagement on Facebook, and finally discover The Wire. That's all in this week’s Gelf Magazine podcast.

I'm not sure what I think of Lance as a person/doper/scenester, but I love watching the Tour with him in it. And if he manages to raise some cancer research funds along the way, all the more better.
