Intermediate 1 Japanese content?

Perhaps I’m missing something, but there doesn’t seem to be much intermediate 1 Japanese content in the library. Intermediate 1 is always a tricky stage, because you have mastered the basics but get quickly overwhelmed by real conversations, articles and stories. Is there a list of recommended providers? Or has anyone got any suggestions for material?
