SiriusXM Pandora will host a special radio town hall that will see rap artist LL  Cool J interviewing Dr. Anthony Fauci on Tuesday.

The town hall will explore the safety and efficacy of several COVID-19 vaccines, according to a blog post published by SiriusXM.

“In this exclusive special, the panelists will discuss the importance of getting vaccinated and share their own experiences with the virus,” a SiriusXM spokesperson wrote. “Following the conversation, panelists will answer questions from a virtual audience. This is an additional opportunity for Dr. Fauci to educate people and clear up misinformation about the vaccine, as well as share facts and research regarding COVID-19.”

The special, called “Is the Vaccine Safe for Us?,” will also feature interviews and commentary from Dr. Marcella Nunez-Smith, the chairperson of the COVID-19 Equity Task Force, and musician DJ Jazzy J. A virtual audience will have a chance to ask questions of the four panelists at the conclusion of the interview.

The town hall will air on Wednesday, March 31 at 6 p.m. Eastern Time on the following SiriusXM satellite and streaming radio stations:

  • LL Cool J’s Rock the Bells Radio (Channel 43)
