Python Packaging and PyPI in 2022

Episode #377, published Sat, Aug 13, 2022, recorded Thu, Aug 11, 2022.

This episode is carbon neutral.
PyPI has been in the news for a bunch of reasons lately. Many of them good. But also, some with a bit of drama or mixed reactions. On this episode, we have Dustin Ingram, one of the PyPI maintainers and one of the directors of the PSF, here to discuss the whole 2FA story, securing the supply chain, and plenty more related topics. This is another important episode that people deeply committed to the Python space will want to hear.

Background noise warning: Just wanted to apologize for a bit of background noise on my end (Dustin had amazing audio). We had construction at our place, which would have been fine. But work started on the ceiling right under my desk making much more noise than expected. I think we generally have it cleaned up, but there may be a few sounds sneaking through. Thanks for the understanding. :)
