Maryam Zaringhalam (@webmz_) is a molecular biologist who traded in her pipettes for the world of science policy and advocacy. She co-hosts the science policy podcast Science Soapbox, is the DC producer for The Story Collider, and her words have appeared in Slate, Scientific American, and Quartz. Her cat is named Tesla, after Nikola and not Elon Musk's car.

Mark Vigeant is a comedian, performer, and writer in New York City. Currently he is a writer for Live From Here on Minnesota Public Radio. His work has been featured on The A.V. Club, Fusion, Nerdist, The Huffington Post, and Funny or Die and he is a former staff writer and performer at Seriously.tv. He was a featured performer in the 2018 Comedy Central Clusterfest Up Next showcase, which is "designed to spotlight the most exciting new voices in comedy."

“Having built a discography boasting names such as Wiz Khalifa, ELUCID, The Roots, Open Mike Eagle, Billy Woods, Milo and many more, Paul “Willie Green” Womack has established himself as one of the top record makers in independent urban music. Residing in Brooklyn NY, Womack is a graduate of Berklee College of Music’s MP&E program and is a freelance producer, engineer and songwriter.”

Darren Solomon is a Clio and Cannes Gold Lion award-winning composer, producer, bassist and keyboard player, based in Brooklyn. He has composed music for hundreds of TV commercials, toured with Ray Charles and Barry Manilow, and created the collaborative music websites In B Flat 2.0 and marker/music. He is a partner and creative director at Quiet City Music + Sound and a visiting affiliate artist at SUNY Purchase. Darren likes throwing his hands in the air, but draws the line at waving them like he just don't care.

Having lived through the “golden age” of Hip Hop, K.Gaines was lucky enough to see rap evolve into a world wide phenomenon that cannot be stopped. But, unlike some of his contemporaries, who refuse to “let go” of the “good times”, he is here to be part of the new evolution of music that will take the sounds of hip hop, classical, jazz, blues, rock, world music, mix them up in a blender and see what happens. He knows that if he doesn’t push the envelope and allow himself to be free within the restrictions of his art form, he will never reach the intelligent audience that his music deserves. Gaines is not one to predict the future, but he will tell you that he will be a big part of it.
