In addition to playing drums for Superchunk, The Mountain Goats and Bob Mould today's guest Jon Wurster is one of the funniest people on the planet as evidenced by his work with former HDWGW guest Tom Scharpling on The Best Show. On this episode we discuss first instruments, why unearned confidence is such good comedy fodder and what it's like to punish your musical idols on the road. Finally, we discuss Jonah's history as a teenage scam artist. Did he ever get caught and did he single-handedly put both Waldenbooks and Borders out of business? You'll have to listen to find out.
