The prairie vole, unlike 97 percent of mammals, are monogamous, forming bonds that last long after mating, and scientists have been doing experiments to try to understand if the hormone they share with humans - oxytocin - may be the reason. Unfortunately, these experiments are pretty rough on the voles. Jeff and Anthony talk about the so-called "Love Hormone" and what it may mean for human romance.
