What kind of applications can you build with python? You hear me featuring many people on this show that build websites, web services, or some data science driven application. Of course, all of those are wonderful but I know many of you have dreamed of building a game.

This episode I'm interviewing Joseph Cherlin. He created the game Epikos and the entire tool chain entirely in Python. He has a great story about how he came across Python, why he decided to use it in his game, and advice he has for anyone out there taking on a large project like this.
