The Talking Tea-Kettle, inserted in your ear, speaks with the voice of the dead. Why would we want to listen? Videographer Terese Svoboda considers this question while relating how Houdini and Nebraska magician David P. Abbott stamped out the practice of mediums in the early years of the twentieth century, with the videographer's shout-out to her own mother.
