Clearly, PyPy is more than a just faster alternative to the standard Python implementation CPython with a JIT and an experimental Software transactional memory implementation. Some people even use it to implement their own programming languages.

We took the opportunity to catch the two core members Armin and Maciej of the PyPy project at a Sprint in Leipzig. They talk about the project, what they achieved so far, what's boiling at the moment, and what else you can achieve with the RPython toolchain.

You will have noticed it by now, we fell back to the least common denominator English as the interview language. We applolgise in advance for the restricted recording environment.

As a side note, this podcast now is also available via bittorrent from Bitlove.org.
