Unless you've been living on the lowest deck of a yacht outside Antigua, you know that author Annie Zaleski's new book on Duran Duran's Rio - part of Bloomsbury's long-running 33 1/3 series on essential albums - is one of the best books on our boys from Birmingham out there!

Don't believe us? Check out our exclusive Q&A with Annie. But if that doesn't convince you - heck, even if it does - you've got to hear the latest Totally 80s Podcast, the first in a two-part chat between Lyndsey Parker, John Hughes and Zaleski. It's a deep dive on an album that remains not only one of the band's best, but one of the brightest spots in anyone's '80s discography.

If you're a dedicated Duranie, this episode has it all: what it was like to talk to the band members, the years-long journey Annie took to write this book, and why men seem to like Duran's first album more. Watch the first part of the chat above or listen wherever you get your podcasts!
