  3. The Trap Set with Joe Wong: Jon Wurster (Superchunk, Bob Mould, Scharpling & Wurster)

    Jon Wurster first made his name as the drummer for Superchunk, and over the past twenty years, he’s become of rock’s most in-demand and versatile drummers. He’s played with everyone from Bob Mould to Katy Perry, but his creative output isn’t limited to music. Jon is one half of the acclaimed and bizarrely hilarious comedy duo Scharpling & Wurster. He talks to Joe about setting ambitious goals at a young age, the power of projecting your intentions into the universe, sobriety, and the relationship between comedy and music.
