Meet the Preppers: The Bobbins

"We're preparing for a comet to strike earth."

One year ago, Amanda Bobbin heard a voice warning her that a devastating comet was making its way towards earth. The voice, named Greta, encouraged Amanda to leave Florida and seek refuge somewhere where she and her family would be safe. Amanda and her husband Scott came upon an idyllic home in North Carolina and when they learned that the former owner’s name was Greta, they knew it was where they were supposed to be. They later discovered that the house, named Paragon Jewel, was full of hidden preps, including stockpiles of toilet paper, gas masks, and clothing. They are convinced that Greta has chosen them to continue her mission, so they have begun actively preparing for doomsday by stocking up on supplies. They also plan to open their doors to anyone who might seek refuge after the comet hits. In this episode we sit with Amanda as she channels Greta through automatic writing. We are also with the couple as they reveal their new prepping lifestyle to their children, who must decide whether they want to be a part of it.
