Tamar Carhart is a sixth-generation Oregonian with a wickedly inquisitive mind and sense of humor. Being diagnosed as autistic at age 13 helped her feel like FINALLY it all makes sense! Leading through her teen years, she was passionate about choir, musical theater, improv, hiking, camping, cats, horse rescue, naturalism, and more. After she developed first fibromyalgia at 15, then lupus at 18, she’s had to reconfigure what life looks like for her now that severe, chronic pain is part of daily life. 

Tamar brings passionate and sometimes encyclopedic knowledge to the Weekly Town Hall team, and has a knack for asking extremely insightful questions that get people excited. She also loves watching for ideas for show guests and/or topics, and found one of our very first guests, William Simpson, II.

Tamar enjoys music, especially Oingo Boingo and Rachmaninov, reading, gaming, running Dungeons & Dragons now and then, and is teaching herself about tarot. She loves to learn, and still has a very soft spot for cats.
