If you loved our recent chat with Annie Zaleski, author of the new 33 1/3 book on Duran Duran's Rio, then you'll love the newest episode of the Rhino Podcast!

Rich Mahan and John Hughes welcome the bestselling author to chat about Rio - which, as it turns out, celebrates its 39th anniversary this week as well - and how her passion and research might be helping turn heads on the Fab Five from '80s icons to something a little more - a band that's influenced decades of rock acts in genres you might not expect!

From favorite tracks off the album to the iconic cover art - not to mention the killer remixes that helped break the band in America - no stone is unturned in this discussion. (And it's truly a banner week for Duran, who today confirmed they'll appear on the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday, May 23, recruiting Blur guitarist Graham Coxon to play a new track from their forthcoming 15th studio album.)
