The Injuries

Gelf's podcasters count down a TV host's departure.

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 wonder if Keith Olbermann's departure from MSNBC was inevitable, and whether Rahm will get to run for mayor (let's hope so, for the sake of the fake Rahm Emanuel Twitter account). Plus: Did Tom Friedman write the State of the Union address? Jay Cutler's PR fumble. Nadal belatedly, sorta, fulfills a Merrill prediction. And Michael discovers a new cocktail.
