Gelf's podcasters read the Afghan documents.

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 analyze the media reaction to the Wikileaks documents about Afghanistan, bemoan Farmville updates, add LeBron's Miami Heat to a list of the world's most hated teams, applaud Anthony Weiner's outburst, and lament the North Korean soccer team's fate.
