This episode is carbon neutral.
Learning about programming libraries and languages is useful and interesting. But sometimes knowing WHY certain decisions were made or the history leading up to some change or package being created gives you a deeper understanding.

That's what this episode is all about. You'll meet Mike Driscoll who runs PyDev of the Week. He also just published a very relevant book: Python Interviews: Discussions with Python Experts.
