The Hack and the Flack

March 12, 2011

The Defunders

Gelf's podcasters tune in to public radio.

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, politics, and media—much like Gelf.

In this week's episode, Michael and Merrill ask if there is any sense in the right's war on NPR. Plus: Microsoft and apple face off for gamers; it's not Tressel's crime, it's his cover-up—and how much lighter his sentence was than that of his players'; a scary force of nature hits Japan; and topical jokes come too soon for Merrill these days.

You can email Michael, Merrill, and Gelf to let us know what you think.
