The Inaugurals

Gelf's podcasters take the oath.

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 talk all things inauguration, from partisan speechifying to bungled oaths to crowd sizes to the purple tunnel of doom. Plus: BlackBerry's free publicity, Pepsi cashes in, a tough week for the Kennedys, and a tribute to Rickey Henderson. That's all in this week’s Gelf Magazine podcast.
