Harry Houdini, in the last years of his life, stepped up his efforts to debunk fraudulent Spiritualists. In 1924, he exposed Margary, one of the Spiritualism movement's most touted mediums. When Houdini died unexpectedly two years later, some wondered if perhaps vengeful Spiritualists had precipitated his death. In this episode, Stephanie discusses this conspiracy theory, as well as Houdini's campaign to publicly discredit Margary, one of Spiritualism's boldest frauds.
