Ethan Siegel is an astrophysicist and science communicator who regular writes a column for Forbes. When he’s not busy writing, he also records the Starts with a Bang Podcast which has been running for 3 years. Ethan was kind enough to invite me on as a guest for Episode 42: Black Holes and Gravitation. We talked about what you would see falling into a black hole, and what the near future might hold for black hole astrophysics! Enjoy :)
