Most recently she worked tirelessly to pass a new -much needed- law on the definition of Consent. Geran Tarr has been working behind the scenes with so much tenacity and passion for making our community a safer place and the changes she has made over the years are positively affecting us all. Let's give it up for Rep. Tarr...

The Blaze Bell Show

I love The Blaze Bell Show. I have learned so much from reading books she has promoted, learned about EFT, and learned how to cope with frustrations by implementing healing tools from her. I followed her on FB and IG since 2016 and VERY happy she started her podcast. I love you Blaze Bell= you are joy.
