This episode is carbon neutral.
It's been a fantastic year for Python. Literally, every year is better than the last with so much growth and excitement in the Python space. That's why I've asked two of my knowledgeable Python friends, Dan Bader and Brian Okken, to help pick the top 10 stories from the Python community for 2018.

Just us on this episode of Talk Python To Me to count them down.
