Madison Preppers, a group launched in March 2012 on Meetup.com, now has 217 members and counting. One or two evenings a month, an average of two dozen preppers show up at Bristol's town hall north of Sun Prairie to share knowledge, trade secrets and, when the mood is right, swap doomsday scenarios. Similar groups exist in Milwaukee and the Fox Valley, though Madison's is the largest in Wisconsin.
Isthmus contributor Seth Jovaag reports on how Madison Preppers are getting ready for ITEOTWAWKI in the October 18 issue and discussed his story with WORT producer Dylan Brogan on the October 17 edition of In Our Backyard.
