Steve Inskeep discussed his book, Instant City: Life and Death in Karachi. He said he chose Karachi because the city best exemplifies the growth and change of a town when the population rapidly escalates. He shared the history of Pakistan’s religions and governments, and the impact of them on the city since 1947. He also talked about a recent trip he made with some National Public Radio (NPR) staff members through Tunisia, Libya, and Egypt. He packaged a series of reports for the “Morning Edition” program and titled them the “Revolutionary Road Trip.” He commented on audio clips of his radio series on the new government in Tunisia, controversy over alcohol in Carthage, and a surprise discovery of young children playing golf in the desert of Benghazi, Libya. He also reflected on his early days in broadcasting as well as the diversity of employees at NPR. close
