What's China up to in Africa? What books should I read on the world's most populous nation? How's their environment doing? This, and much more from the weekly updated Sinica podcast. Hosted by Popup Chinese.

And, for the more low-brow...

University President Poses Naked, Art Students Impressed! 10-Year-Old Chinese Auto Mechanic Kicked Out of School! What Would Chinese Netizens Ask Paul the Oracle Octopus? Brother Sharp Appears on Stage at Fashion Show in Guandong!!!

This and more at chinaSMACK, bringing you the latest Chinese internet memes and netizen trash talk, complete with translated forum comments and a glossary of slang.

(I would have linked to all of those headlines, but appears to be down at this exact moment. Great post btw!)

Hey, sweet! I'm not involved with Sinica (other than knowing the people involved), but I do recording for Popup Chinese. A link from Metafilter? We're big-time now!

Quality. Required listening if you're into anything at all China-related, and even more so if you live here. Good god damn show.

Henning Mankel's The Man from Beijing deals heavily with this topic, and is a GREAT read to boot. One of those "devour it in one sitting nevermind that it was nearly 400 pages" books.
