The Hack and the Flack

October 25, 2008

The Sympathizers

Gelf's podcasters go Isaac Newton on Apple.

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 wonder if economic gravity will take down Apple, weigh the impact of Colin Powell's endorsement of Barack Obama, review Palin's spending spree and Obama's campaign suspension, consider ESPN's inconsistent taboo on Hitler comparisons, and talk Jose Canseco and Ohio State football. That's all in this week’s Gelf Magazine podcast.
