40 – What is Monogamy?

One of my areas of research is monogamy and nonmonogamy. One of the questions I have been interested in since early on is how do we define monogamy? I started with monogamous and nonmonogamous voles. But it turns out, the monogamous voles aren’t even sexually monogamous. Are any animals monogamous? What about humans? What about you? How do you define monogamy? Do people in your life define it the same way? Have you ever had a detailed conversation about what monogamy means to you? This and many more questions in this episode of Do We Know Things?


Monogamy, what do we know? Do we know things? Let’s find out!
