* CORRECTION: The black hole in question is Messier 87, not "TON 68" as Ellen mentioned on the podcast. The designation of the black hole that Ellen thought she was referring to is TON 618. The black hole that's part of the TON 618 quasar is one of the most massive black holes ever discovered.Giving Talks 0:45:29 Stephen McGregor Events Marketing View recently-broadcasted talks from IGDA-TC - Twitch Resonate: Present Visual Stories that Transform Audiences (a book) - Nancy Duarte
