Sabine Hossenfelder, a high-energy physicist at Sweden's Nordic Institute for Theoretical Physics, is the main voice behind the excellent Backreaction blog, which is highly recommended for those seeking reasonably accessible inside takes on, well, physics. It so happens that she makes videos too, which is good news for us.

Hossenfelder put this one up last week, "10 Things You Should Know About Black Holes." Some of them you surely already know, but she does a great job concisely explaining some of the harder-to-grasp features of black hole life, such as the Black Hole Information Paradox.
