Lab 2.1: Significance of pod networking steps


Just getting into the labs and some of the steps come out of left field as there has been no content covering the concepts.
Why is it necessary to install the pod networking? What is happening in these steps? Which one is best to use?

And in the following example to join a node to the cluster, where does the IP address come from?

    Thanks, that makes sense. But I thought we only needed calico if we had multiple nodes/hosts. I didn't see any configuration step that enabled pods on the master. Have I missed something?
