Guido van Rossum retires as Python's BDFL 😱

We were just discussing this on a recent episode, and now it's a reality!?

I'm basically giving myself a permanent vacation from being BDFL, and you all will be on your own. After all that's eventually going to happen regardless -- there's still that bus lurking around the corner, and I'm not getting younger... (I'll spare you the list of medical issues.)

He will not appoint a successor. What happens next?! Not even Guido knows:

So what are you all going to do? Create a democracy? Anarchy? A dictatorship? A federation?

Grab some 🍿 because this is gonna get interesting!
