We all want a love bizarre - and there's a lot to love about the latest Totally 80's Podcast - the second in a two-part deep dive on Prince's protegees!

On this installment, Lyndsey Parker and John Hughes welcome back Scott T. Sterling to discuss the artists that Minneapolis' favorite son helped discover and produce in the '80s and beyond. And this time, it's ladies to the front: Sheila E., Sheena Easton, Wendy & Lisa and even Carmen Electra and Kim Basinger's collaborations with Prince get covered here. There's even some throwback to the days of The Family, the group he helped put together after the dissolution of The Time in the mid-'80s. (While never super-famous, the group is well-known for featuring Wendy's twin sister Susannah Melvoin, Prince's one-time fiancee, as well as being the first album to feature eventual No. 1 hit "Nothing Compares 2 U."

It's another delightful chat for purple people that you won't want to miss. Watch it above or listen wherever you get podcasts!
