Pythia is one of the most widely used general-purpose Monte Carlo event generators in HEP. It has included a python interface to the underlying C++ since v8.219, and it was redesigned to handle C++11 using pyBind11 since v8.301, allowing users to generate a custom python interface.

This talk will showcase the power and flexibility of Pythia's default, simplified python interface by presenting its basic features and walking through a simple event-generation and analysis workflow.
