Karachi, Pakistan’s fast-growing commercial center, with a population of some 13 million, largely drawn from the countryside in the last few decades, typifies today’s “megacity.” In his portrait of this complex metropolis, the award-winning NPR host and correspondent looks at the city’s numerous political, religious, and ethnic divisions as well as its many innovative health and education programs. Inskeep will be in conversation with Madhulika Sikka, executive producer of Morning Edition.
