Show Notes

In today's episode of The Annex, we present a talk with Anna Bounds (CUNY Queens College) to discuss her book on urban doomsday preparation, Bracing for the Apocalypse: An Ethnographic Study of New York's 'Prepper" Subculture (2020, Routledge). Our talk took place in May, during New York's darkest COVID19 days. We talk about the immediate impact of COVID19 in New York City, and how the prepper community prepared for such a day. Our discussion was recorded on May 5, 2020.
