In Python 3.8, the default start method for multiprocessing when run on macOS is now "spawn" instead of "fork".

"Changed in version 3.8: On macOS, the spawn start method is now the default. The fork start method should be considered unsafe as it can lead to crashes of the subprocess. See bpo-33725."
