Gravitational waves provide a unique observational handle on the properties of strong, dynamical gravity. Ringdowns, in particular, cleanly encode information about the structure of black holes, allowing us to test fundamental principles like the no-hair theorem and the area law. In this talk, I will review the status of this effort, including recent observational results and remaining challenges.
