Gelf's podcasters sit in on ESPN programming meetings.

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 say ESPN was focusing on the "entertainment" in its name when joining forces with LeBron, urge Facebook to keep all Sarah Palin commentary online, name Glenn Beck an unlikely winner in the Shirley Sherrod debacle, preview the new Jersey Shore season, and are impressed by Microsoft's big haul.
