I need a way to convert a string like this:

{
    "event": {
                      "event_type":"method_Name",
                      "event_time":"1475692166",
                      "event_hash":"1234",
                      "event_metadata": {
                                                          "related_firstName":null,
                                                          "reported_secondName":"1234",
                                                          "reported_for_ID":null,
                                                          "event_message":null
                                                    }
                }
 }

into a python dictionary and I need to deal with the nested JSON array's as well.
