An underground skyscraper?
Larry doesn’t want “possible marauders” stealing his stuff in a post-apocalyptic free-for-all, so he’s doing what any sane individual would do: He’s building an entire condo building underground, fourteen stories embedded in nine feet of concrete. When it's finished, Larry says this luxurious bunker will have a swimming pool, exercise rooms, and a movie theater. And it’ll also withstand a direct nuclear strike… which should help boost the property values of those condos.
Tune in, turn on, hunker down
Ed might look like a peace-loving hippie, but he’s ready to go to nuclear war: He and his wife have converted an abandoned Kansas missile silo into a cozy underground home decorated with Tibetan prayer flags. Good thing he remembered to bring his acoustic guitar with him… or maybe a bad thing, depending on your musical tastes.

Get into the foxhole!
More kids running drills: This time, it’s 11-year-old Cole, who joins his parents on an end-of-the-world drill which involves him and his dad racing into a foxhole they’ve built in their garage while Mom stands guard at the front door with a rifle. (How’d she get that job?) Cole doesn’t sound too thrilled once he's down there, though: “This place is awesome… I guess.”
“Doomsday Preppers” airs Tuesdays at 9 PM on National Geographic.
