Could you give up complaining and gossiping for three weeks? The Reverend Will Bowen says it's worth trying, and he's launched a nationwide campaign to get people to try it. But where would we be without complaining? In this archived interview, host Madeleine Brand talks with the Reverend and then turns to a master kvetcher, Michael Wex, about whether a life without kvetching is even worth living.

This segment was originally broadcast on February 27, 2008.
