If you’re looking for interesting media/videos to study mandarin, I hope 一条 is on your radar!
Most of their videos are in Mandarin (but occasionally in Japanese or English with Chinese subtitles). The content and diverse as the two videos below from the very same week— no matter what they cover, the quality always seems to be high!
95後的蒸汽昆蟲藝術家 Post-95 Steampunk Insect Artist
跨性別者：性器官不能決定我的性別 Transgender People: My Genitals Can’t Decide My Gender
So good! Another gem from 一条 YIT. Their mini-videos don’t seem to stick to a predetermined theme and frequently end up being wonderfully unique and authentic.
(5 min video—Mandarin w/ English Subtitles).
“In 2015, unwed female artist Guo Yingguang above the average of marriage had an experience at the famous blind date corner in Shanghai People’s Park. She was shocked by the crowd of parents and the dating ads.
She began to do research, and created a piece of performance art: she posted an ad to promote herself in order to find a date, but she got laughed at. She took pictures and video of these scenes, and made a series of photographs called “The Happiness of Obedience”.”
