The Outings

Gelf's podcasters manage PR crises.

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 critique the crisis communications of BP, Goldman, and other beleaguered firms. Plus: A warrior against gay rights comes out of the closet; why Tiger has an easier path to redemption than Clemens; the Yankees' soulless new stadium; and a nicotine-and-Cheetos-fueled small-town story.

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