What happens when a city experiences explosive growth and balloons into a vast metropolis? That's what happened to Karachi, Pakistan which has grown from 400,000 people in the 1940s to more than 13-million people today. NPR's Morning Edition co-host Steve Inskeep talked to KPLU's Kirsten Kendrick about the growing pains of one of the world's fastest-growing cities which is the subject of his new book, Instant City - Life And Death In Karachi.

Kirsten Kendrick hosts Morning Edition on KNKX and the sports interview series "Going Deep," talking with folks tied to sports in our region about what drives them — as professionals and people.
