Talk Python to Me is a weekly podcast hosted by developer and entrepreneur Michael Kennedy. We dive deep into the popular packages and software developers, data scientists, and incredible hobbyists doing amazing things with Python. If you're new to Python, you'll quickly learn the ins and outs of the community by hearing from the leaders. And if you've been Pythoning for years, you'll learn about your favorite packages and the hot new ones coming out of open source.

Here's a question: What's the most common way to explore data? Would you say pandas and matplotlib? Maybe you went more general and said Jupyter notebooks. How about Excel, or Google Sheets, or Numbers, or some other spreadsheet app? Yeah, my bet is on Excel. And while it has many drawbacks, it makes exploring tabular data very accessible to many p…
 
At PyCon 2017, Jake Vanderplas gave a great keynote where he said, "Python is a mosaic." He described how Python is stronger and growing because it's being adopted and used by people with diverse technical backgrounds. In this episode, we're adding to that mosaic by diving into how Python is being used in the architecture, engineering, and construc…
 
Do you do anything with Jupyter notebooks? If you do, there is a very good chance you're working with the pandas library. This is one of THE primary tools of anyone doing computational work or data exploration with Python. Yet, this library is massive and knowing the idiomatic way to use it can be hard to discover. That's why I've invited Bex Tuych…
 
Is Python slow? We touched on that question with Guido and Mark last episode. This time we welcome back friend of the show, Anthony Shaw. Here's there to share the massive amount of work he's been doing to answer that question and speed things up where they answer is yes. He's just released version 1.0 of the Pyjion project. Pyjion is a drop-in JIT…
 
There has a been a bunch of renewed interested in making Python faster. While for some of us, Python is already plenty fast. For others, such as those in data science, scientific computing, and even the large tech companies, making Python even a little faster would be a big deal. This episode is the first of several that dive into some of the activ…
 
How do you build and maintain a complex suite of Python packages? Of course, you want to put them on PyPI. The best format there is as a wheel. This means that when developers use your code, it comes straight down and requires no local tooling to install and use. But if you have compiled dependencies, such as C or FORTRAN, then you have a big chall…
 
Have you heard of Kedro? It's a Python framework for creating reproducible, maintainable and modular data science code. We all know that reproducibility and related topics are important ones in the data science space. The freedom to pop open a notebook and just start exploring is much of the magic. Yet, that free-form style can lead to difficulties…
 
Have you heard of the package Rich? This library allows you to create very, well, rich terminal-based UIs in Python. When you think of what you can typically build with basic print statements, that may seem quite limited. But with Rich, imagine justified tables, progress bars, rendering of markdown, and way more. This is one of the fastest growing …
 
Gene therapy holds the promise to permanently cure diseases that have been considered life-long challenges. But the complexity of rewriting DNA is truly huge and lives in its own special kind of big-data world. On this episode, you'll meet David Born, a computational biologist who uses Python to help automate genetics research and helps move that w…
 
On this episode, Rob Emanuele and Tom Augspurger join us to talk about building and running Microsoft's Planetary Computer project. This project is dedicated to providing the data around climate records and the compute necessary to process it with the mission of help use all understand climate change better. It combines multiple petabytes of data w…
 
We know that Python and data science are growing in lock-step together. But exactly what's happening in the data science space in 2021? Stan Seibert from Anaconda is here to give us a report on what they found with their latest "State of Data Science in 2021" survey. Links from the show Stan on Twitter: @seibert State of data science survey results…
