 Episode Fifty: The End | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 31:20

Here we are, friends. The End. Carley and Dave wrap up fifty episodes of arts speak by talking about the artform they've learnt the most about: podcasting. How they did it, when they did it, bits that worked, and bits that didn't. And of course, plans for the future. Thanks heaps for listening and for being a part of our experiment. It was more rewarding than any of us expected.

On this our second to last episode of Stuff and Things, our good nerd friend Luke Bootle, aka Boots, is back to talk about all the things he's accumulated into a list since last he was on the podcast.

Why would we lie to you?

Mace played to thousands of people that night, and has since gone on to begin to build a professional career in music. We chatted to him about it, and he even played us a nice tune at the end!
