Before Houdini’s death, he famously gave his wife a code word. This was to prevent mediums and psychics from coming to her door, breathlessly confirming that they had spoken with Harry after his passing. With the word, she could immediately double check their work by asking if he’d passed along the secret message.

New words have been provided and sealed in envelopes which will be kept in the ciustody of James Randi until the live broadcast which will take place beginning at 9PM EST on Haloween Eve.

The event will be hosted by our friends at  Andrew Mayne, Justin Robert Young & Brian Brushwood.
