What do you do with a 50th episode so spectacular that you can't fit it into one episode? Simple, you split it into 2 episodes.
Part 2 (Electric Bugaloo) consists of a long and most excellent interview with Rus Wooton (Crowdfinders 36), letterist extraordinaire and a talk with Olivia Li about Boundless, the science comics anthology that features, among other great talents, ME, Dave, straight from the podcast shack.
