Talk Python To Me

A podcast on Python and related technologies


Latest episode:
#299 Personal search engine with datasette and dogsheep

In this episode, we'll be discussing two powerful tools for data reporting and exploration: Datasette and Dogsheep.

Datasette helps people take data of any shape or size, analyze and explore it, and publish it as an interactive website and accompanying API.

Dogsheep is a collection of tools for personal analytics using SQLite and Datasette. Imagine a unified search engine for everything personal in your life such as twitter, photos, google docs, todoist, goodreads, and more, all in once place and outside of cloud companies.

On this episode we talk with Simon Willison who created both of these projects. He's also one of the co-creators of Django and we'll discuss some early Django history!

What listeners think

Interesting and entertaining
I'm an avid listener of podcasts going way back before this was a big thing. This is one of those special gems worth listening to, learn something new or remind me of what is possible in Python.

Great Python Podcast
Talk Python To Me is in the rotation of podcasts that I listen to on a regular basis. The guests are always interesting. The topics are quite often relevant to things I'm working on or thinking about. Michael, the host, also keeps things moving at a good pace and keeps the conversation lively. I also enjoy his "regular questions" at the end of the show. Always good to hear how other folks answer those questions!

Finance - risk guy
Hey, I'm a finance and risk guy that is newer to Python, was using excel vba macros but once I saw the power and possibilities of Python, have been hooked ever since. Love the podcast, I think I am a wannabe developer, maybe some day, haha. Take it easy.
