Co-Hosts Dave Rubin and Ben Harvey

The Six Pack was an interactive talk show on Sirius XM Radio and podcast that ran from 2009-2012.[1] The show was hosted by stand-up comedian and talk show host Dave Rubin and Ben Harvey.[2] Beginning in May 2009, The Six Pack went on to become the leading LGBT podcast on iTunes and a top ten downloaded comedy podcast on iTunes.[3]

The show was presented in six segments ranging from celebrity interviews, news, pop culture, and music. The duo was referred to as the "gay Lewis and Clark of the airwaves" [4] by Modern Tonic, and their on-air rapport had been labeled a "mas macho" version of Ryan Seacrest and Simon Cowell from American Idol by Entertainment Weekly.[5]

The Six Pack was both recorded and broadcast live at Sirius XM Radio in New York City.

After wrapping up a year on Sirius XM Radio, Dave Rubin went on to host his own talk show, The Rubin Report, on The Young Turks Network in Los Angeles, California.[6]
