- Rev. Dr. Otis Moss III: Senior Pastor of Trinity United Church of Christ, Chicago IL
- Hillari Lombard: Host of Moderate Party Podcast

They also explored how disinformation intersects with public health, religion and our daily lives and address how we can reduce its harms without infringing upon free speech and civil and human rights.
