Black hole spectroscopy is a powerful tool to probe the Kerr nature of astrophysical compact objects and their environment. The observation of multiple ringdown modes in gravitational waveforms could soon lead to high-precision gravitational spectroscopy, thus it is critical to understand if the quasinormal mode spectrum itself is stable against perturbations. In this talk, I will review the pseudospectrum, a mathematical tool which can shed light on the spectral stability of quasinormal modes, and discuss its novel applications in black holes and exotic compact objects. Furthermore, I will demonstrate that quasinormal spectra generically suffer from spectral instabilities and will argue how such
behavior may affect black hole spectroscopy.
