yet the center holds for now

Very enlightening YouTube podcast by two expat friends who live in China and have families there. They have a whole slew of videos, often critical in tone, about many aspects of China and living in China. There are certainly some parallels with life in South Korea, but in this particular video, the topic is why everything seems so dilapidated—a problem that is only a relatively minor one here in Korea (relative to China, I mean), where new (and arguably better-quality) buildings are springing up all the time.

I like how the talk-radio format has been supplemented with motorcycle-riding. This gives the viewer a great sense of what China really looks like—a feeling that's sometimes missing when one is only reading about China.

Elsewhere: China's "No Solution, Don't Care" culture.
