I will outline how taking colimits of monads corresponds to applying straightforward syntactic constructions to the underlying algebraic theories. I will explain a sense in which many kinds of colimit of monads on Set are badly behaved (called universe dependence). In contrast to this, I will show that coproducts of monads on Set are universe independent. I will explain in detail the structure of these coproducts, which is reminiscent of a formula due to Ghani and Uustalu.
