The Hack and the Flack

The Versus

Gelf's podcasters join the battles over blogs.

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 why any flack would pitch stories to blogs; take sides in AP vs. blogs; blog blog blog…oh, sorry. They also ask who won the Shaq-Kobe rap battle, and discuss whether Lance Armstrong is too slutty. It's OK to ask the question, because the New York Times already has! That's all in this week’s Gelf Magazine podcast.
