The Leaks

Gelf's podcasters read diplomatic cables.

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 debate the following:
•Does Julian Assange deserve international police scrutiny?
•Is Google getting a good deal at Groupon?
•Did Merrill write off Roger Federer too soon or is he sticking to his guns?
Plus: travesties in NCAA enforcement and World Cup host selections. Click here to listen to the podcast.

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