Gelf Magazine - Looking over the overlooked

The Hack and the Flack

March 21, 2008

The Confused

Gelf's podcasters make sense of the Bear Stearns bailout.

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 are puzzled. They try to decide whether the Fed's bailout of Bear Stearns gives the shaft to the little guy, applaud Obama's race speech, weigh the relevance of the pre-March Madness college-hoops season, and gape at the latest NY gov's affair, all in this week’s Gelf Magazine podcast.
