This episode is carbon neutral.
Python is used to solve a large and varied set of problems. One of its core pillars is web APIs. Another one is ML and data science. Those two important pieces were brought together in an unexpected yet magically-futuristic way by Rod Senra's team working with the Gatorade Sports Science Institute.

They created a patch that you wear while working out once or twice. It analyzes your perspiration. Combines with it other factors like running distance, sleep quality, and more. Then provides recommendations, using Python, about how to get more effective fitness.
