Though you hear them together almost every day, Morning Edition hosts Steve Inskeep and Renee Montagne are rarely on the same coast, much less in the same city. Monday evening, however, the duo met in Los Angeles for a face-to-face chat during an event celebrating Steve's new book, Instant City: Life and Death in Karachi.

As part of the event, Renee interviewed her co-host about his experience in the commercial center of Pakistan, where in the shadow of the violence that hovers over Karachi, he found tolerance, vitality, and a thriving civil society.

The event was hosted by Live Talks Los Angeles, partnered with KCET and KPC, at the Track 16 Gallery in Santa Monica, Ca. Read more about the event on KCET's site.
