non-fiction non-covid-19 reading recommendations?

Recommended Posts

大块头

《今日话题》on Tencent News hasn't updated for two months, Vice China appears to have ceased publishing altogether, and the New York Times Chinese edition is a feverish miasma of articles about the coronavirus...

 

I'm picking through the what are you reading thread, but I'd appreciate any non-fiction reading recommendations. I'm looking for something that:

  • won't be swamped by articles about the coronavirus
  • covers many different topics (science, history, humanities, etc.) so I get exposure to a variety of vocabulary
  • has long-form articles
  • updates daily or has a large archive of previously published articles

 

I suppose I'm looking for something like Mental Floss or 煎蛋 but with higher quality and longer articles. Any ideas?

I was gonna make another post to ask the same, I have been using BBC中文 to cover some more formal language in the form of news articles but it's all the same now.

Maybe someone knows something like 故事FM, but in text format?

The 公众号 “最爱历史” might be worth a look, their posts are well written, varied and most importantly not related to current affairs. I have a read every now and again for a change

Although only recent articles are directly accessible from the BBC中文 portal, they do keep older articles.

I'd suggest googling BBC中文 + any topic you're interested in, in order to find the links to those older articles.

And additionally, once you've reached an interesting article, it will contain links to similar articles.
