Gelf's podcasters say Sykes should have pulled out early.

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 whether comparing Rush Limbaugh to a terrorist was a funny joke, agree that calling Kenyon Martin a thug was a smart business move by Mark Cuban, discuss the demise of Blender and the glossy media with Jonah Weiner, dissect googlefail, and revel in the rise of Dick Cheney as the Democrats' top opponent.
