The Upsets

Gelf's podcasters patent their smartphones.

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 step into the line of fire of the patent war between Microsoft and Google; track the real 'war,' Obama's first, in Libya; applaud the selection committee's pick of VCU; climb the new New York Times paywall; and lament the Buckeyes' big loss. Click here to listen to the podcast.

You can email Michael, Merrill, and Gelf to let us know what you think.
