The Questions

Gelf's podcasters ponder smartphone-deal smarts.

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 find experts divided on a proposed tie-up between Palm and H-P, hope Obama doesn't have a "heck of a job, Brownie" fallout from the oil spill, wonder if it's ever appropriate to ask a job applicant if his mother is a prostitute, and offer a cultural tip.
