Morning Edition cohost Steve Inskeep presents a riveting account of a single harrowing day in December 2009 that sheds light on the constant tensions in Karachi, Pakistan - when a bomb blast ripped through a Shia religious procession, followed by the torching of hundreds of businesses in Karachi's commercial district. Through interviews with a broad cross section of Karachi residents, Inskeep peels back the layers of that terrible day. It is the beginning, and a constant touchstone, in a journey across the city's epic history and its troubled present. Thrilling and deeply researched, Instant City tells the story of one of the world's fastest-growing metropolises and the forces competing to shape its future.
