Gelf's podcasters won't shake Lebron's hand.

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 try to shake hands with Lebron James, talk to Slate's Emily Bazelon about the Supreme Court confirmation process and to Phil Goldstein of Fierce Wireless about the latest fancy phone, snooze through the women's final at Roland Garros, and wear the Three Wolf Moon T-Shirt.
