The simplest way I've found to do this is to use something like GNU parallel.
I don't know if there's a Windows equivalent but it works well for me on linux
and you can use it for any program (not just python scripts).
>From the wikipedia page:
The most common usage is to replace the shell loop, for example
(for x in `cat list` ; do
done) | process_output
to the form of
cat list | parallel do_something | process_output
Note that there are two basic types of parallel execution depending on whether
or not your parallel processes need to communicate with one another. I'm
assuming that you really just want to run independent jobs simultaneously.
Otherwise the other suggestions may be more relevant.
