The Untitled GenX Podcast

Duran Duran - Rio (1982) ⁠— with Michelle Newman!

May 10, 2022

Podcast queen Michelle Newman is here to fangirl over wild boys Duran Duran and their new wave sophomore triumph, 1982’s Rio.

Michelle gets real about life as Simon Le Bon's "wife" in '84, that first concert experience, nonsensical Duran Duran lyrics, titillating music videos, painted women, and Duran Duran as MEN ... but not before Lori is stripped of her Gen X membership for thinking Duran Duran consisted of two dudes: Duran, Duran.
