Gelf's podcasters take sides in Obama v. The Left.

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 discuss whether Obama has betrayed the left. Plus: H-P's leadership problem; the Sir Charles-King James feud; entering a debate on an edgy Wired cover; and BlackBerry's buzzless release. Click here to listen to the podcast.

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