The Hack and the Flack

The Redeemers

Gelf's podcasters drain the swamp.

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 survey the PR disaster of USA Swimming; break down Tiger Woods and his Masters comeback, as the storyline turns to golf; take inspiration from a prior Hack & Flack (and Varsity Letters) guest to consider running barefoot; and visit a Mets team in despair.
