Cannot capture non-local packets on MacOS

I'm trying to use WireShark to capture packets. When I run a capture on en0 (my Wi-Fi interface), though, all I see is packets directed to or coming from my IP addresses (broadcast packets also show up).

How do I capture TCP/IP packets that are directed to other devices on my Wi-Fi network?

Here are the specs for my device:

  • MacBook Pro 2019, 13-inch, four Thunderbolt 3 ports (model identifier MacBookPro15,2)
  • 16 GB RAM
  • 2.8 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i7
