About us

Micropolis is a project of WNYC, New York City’s NPR affiliate, and that’s me, Arun Venugopal, the guy who started it (as seen on a subway in London).

When we’re not Tumbl-ing about NYC, we’re making radio about such matters as… the meaning of hoodies, the neighborhoods New Yorkers avoid, why Broadway audiences are so white, and how devout Muslim women work out.
