This week is Braves week with our podcast featuring the Atlanta Braves being released on Friday, April 22nd.  As we prepared for the release of our Ernie Harwell podcast (Episode 38) which was released on December 10, 2010, we learned that the late great Ernie Harwell (1918 – 2010) was the paperboy for Margaret Mitchell (1900 – 1949).

This fact inspired us to dig deeper and explore this connection.  While stuck in bed with a broken ankle, Margaret Mitchell sat in her apartment and started to write her first novel, Gone With The Wind.  During our current Great Recession, would you spend $40 to buy a book for pleasure reading?

In 1936, during the Great Depression, over 1 million Americans did just that.  (The novel cost $3 at the time which equals $40 dollars today.)  “I had the chance to interview Joanna Arrieta from the Margaret Mitchell House,” said Ed Kasputis, Creative Director of Baseball PhD.  “Her interview was engaging and unforgettable.  I was shocked to learn that after adjusting for inflation, the highest grossing U.S. film of all-time was Gone With The Wind and not Star Wars.”  You can hear this outstanding interview during out next podcast.

It all started in Apartment 1
