Episode 33: Jonah Bayer of United Nations on pursuing a career in counselling
Host Jason Schreurs welcomes Jonah Bayer to the podcast. Jonah plays guitar in United Nations and is the former music editor at Alternative Press. Jonah is pursuing a career in mental health counselling and, in 2019, enrolled in the Clinical Mental Health Counselling Program at Antioch University in New England. Jonah's longterm goal is to provide counselling for bands. With his clients, he hopes to cover band dynamics, the pressures of touring, and what he calls arrested development; what to do for a career outside the band.https://theofficialun.bandcamp.comFeatured songs:United Nations - "Stairway To Mar-a-Lago" (2017)At The Drive-In - "Arcarsenal" live at Big Day Out Festival (2001)The Lovekill - "Heart Wires" from These Moments Are Momentum (Astro Magnetics, 2006)Photo: Christian NapolitanoAbout this podcast:Scream Therapy explores the link between punk rock and mental health.

The holidays are upon us, which means one thing: family. To celebrate that whole being related thing, the Talkhouse threw a special live podcast at New York’s Sonos store featuring a conversation between Saturday Night Live‘s Vanessa Bayer and her brother, musician and writer Jonah Bayer. The hilarious sibs sat down to discuss Jonah's first-ever cappuccino (at Lilith Fair), how Vanessa only gets into cool bands after they play on SNL, their sibling band and how the Bayer family spends the holidays.

Jonah Bayer of United Nations and Going Off Track podcast took some time to help me cope with the pains of rush hour traffic. We discuss some stuff that makes me sound pretty horrible. Starting to be a theme, I guess. Maybe I'm a shittier person than I think I am. Or maybe trying to be a good person makes you a shittier person. I'm the worst. Jonah is a close second. Like seriously, I couldn't be inconvenienced for 3 seconds to say "Preferred Gender Preference?" What a jerk. I see the error of my ways now. Check out Jonah's website and get the low down on all the amazing things he does.
