The Drugs

Gelf's podcasters go on the House floor.

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 disagree about whether House Republicans accomplished anything by repealing health-care reform. Plus: How Apple and Google will do after their CEOs depart; the new drug allegations against Lance Armstrong, and a plea to investigate the investigators; signs of hope for long-form journalism; and MTV's classy reality programming.

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