1 Rating
Host Lior Phillips is joined by Garbage frontwoman Shirley Manson to discuss how touring and performing has changed since the band's 1990s inception, the long line of women musicians that inspired her, and the secrets of her "witch" powers.

They also dig into breaking down barriers in the industry, Shirley's first concert, finding authenticity on stage in the modern age, and running into Joe Strummer on the street in Edinburgh as a child. This episode will feel like sitting in the green room and listening to old friends chat about facing down bottle-tossing fans and disinterested festival crowds, the camaraderie in the "sisterhood" of music, and the challenge of sustaining a career for multiple decades.
