Since the first detection of gravitational waves, the field of gravitational wave astrophysics has been progressing at an accelerating pace. With dozens of detected sources, gravitational waves promise to both contribute towards addressing existing questions about our Universe and open new avenues for investigation. In this talk I will give an overview of some of the latest progress in select areas. I will talk about how gravitational waves can and have been used in conjunction with other astronomical and terrestrial probes to study the properties on neutron stars, the most dense material compact object we know of. I will further discuss some novel explorations facilitated by gravitational waves, in particularly with regards to the properties of General Relativity.
