The Hack and the Flack

The Ripoffs

Gelf's podcasters get juiced.

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, and media—much like Gelf.

In this week's episode, Michael and Merrill react to A-Rod's steroids admission, find 25 random things to loathe about a Facebook trend, watch Obama in prime time, and hate on the media's love/hate relationship with Brett Favre stories. That's all in this week’s Gelf Magazine podcast.
