ERROR: [SSL: CERTIFICATE_VERIFY_FAILED] certificate verify failed

I am attempting to run the alpacahq/example-scalping script in Python 3.8 but I continue to get the [SSL: CERTIFICATE_VERIFY_FAILED] certificate verify failed error each time I run.

I am on a Mac with 10.14.6 running Python 3.8, I have already tried the Install Certificates command in the application folder as well as installing certifi, neither of which have worked.

any ideas?
