Episode #82: "Moving Merchandise"


2011-11-04-Masterimg4.jpgHigh Pitch Mike of SiriusXM's Howard Stern Show joins us for an all-in-the family episode of The Six Pack. Mike talks about what it was like to come out live on air to Howard, millions of listeners, and the whole cast and crew.

"I came out three years ago, I emailed Howard, and I said I want to do it publicly, I don't care anymore," Mike says of his coming out on the Howard Stern Show. "I was afraid, like many people are afraid, not to embrace that I'm gay, but the way people react." He also dives into the infamous fight with Artie Lange: "At one point he went on a rant, that I kind of pushed him, too, and I said some ugly things back to him," Mike tells us. "I was accusing him of being on drugs, he was accusing me of being gay... and both of those were true."
