20,000 Leagues Under the Ringularity: What's Inside of a Black Hole?

The black hole, an object so massive that not even light can escape its gravity, has made quite the splash in the past half-decade with LIGO's detections of gravitational waves, movies like Interstellar, and the first-ever image of an event horizon last April. But what lies within this event horizon? A wormhole? A firewall? A baby universe? Join me as we discuss what general relativity can tell us about black hole interiors and how quantum physics might change things, as well as what life is like as a physics grad student!
