Not a how-to but addictively fascinating. It is neat to see how people are using Python.

Required listening
Very substantive, polished podcast. Michael is the ideal interviewer: deeply knowledgeable and prepared, but knows how to get out of the way and let his guests dominate the conversation. Absolutely required listening for all Pythoneers IMO.
