Gossip Can Be Good For You

Research suggests that gossip -- even around the water cooler or at the corner bar -- can be very good for groups of friends, colleagues or simple acquaintances. Gossipers, experts and listeners discuss the good -- and not so good -- of scuttlebutt.

Guests:

Jack Levin, sociologist at Northeastern University

Lloyd Grove, gossip columnist for the New York Daily News

Nova Lanktree, vice president of marketing services for CSMG International, a sports management and consulting firm
