Our interview with Italy's Måneskin is our first to reach one million views on YouTube. In honour of that, we're re-uploading the interview here on our podcast. We spoke with the Eurovision 2021 winners inside Rotterdam Ahoy following their second rehearsal, a week before the grand final. Among other things, bass guitarist Victoria De Angelis tells us that she doesn't feel like she faces any particular challenges as a woman in rock, partly because of the support she receives from band mates Damiano David, Thomas Raggi, and Ethan Torchio. They also discuss busking and the bullying they faced in high school.
