From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 1:25 pm on 26 August 2016

Western culture has a long-held belief, that humans have evolved to be monogamous in relationships. But our guest challenges this, saying he has the answers as to why women have affairs. He's undertaken new research at the University of Texas. David Buss is a professor of evolutionary psychology from the university. And the author of the book, The Evolution of Desire: Strategies of Human Mating.
