Tony is available forFull-Time AP or Producer roles that will help me take my freelancing experience and technical expertise to new heights. I particularly love editing, sound design, scoring, and interviewing, but I'm experienced in most aspects of the production process. My goal is to work in a high quality shop with masters of the craft. Also open to contract work, tape syncs, and consulting.
As an audio producer, I came of age making beats in my parents’ basement. My background in music has led to a natural flair for editing, mixing, and arrangement, and they've been incredibly useful as I've worked on everything from audiobooks to investigative audio documentaries. Since 2017, I've produced three shows start-to-finish:
- Murderhobos, a biography podcast looking at historical men-at-arms and their conceptions of masculinity.
- What’s Good Man? a podcast on the search for healthy masculinity with national poetry slam winner Kyle “Guante” Tran Myhre
- Enough Is Enough: A 150 Year Performance Review Of The Minneapolis Police Department, an project by Minneapolis activist collective MPD150
Along the way, I've produced freelance work for a variety of clients, including Audible, Crooked Media, and KFAI, among others. I've worked as a researcher, a writer, an engineer, and a post-production specialist. I graduated from the SALT Institute for Documentary Studies in December 2022 after deciding to further my knowledge of documentary ethics and story structure.
Gender studies class meets history podcast. A show examining violent men throughout history and the cultures of masculinity they lived in. Hosted by history professor Adam Franti, developed and produced by me.
Lead writer and producer on this audiobook examining the past, present, and future of the Minneapolis Police Department.
Co-Host and Lead Producer. “What’s Good, Man?” is a podcast on men, masculinity, and culture. Featuring two hosts who sharpened their analyses in the worlds of Hip Hop, cultural organizing, and movement-building, it’s also a response to a specific call: men need to speak up more about issues like consent, gender violence, and sexism, especially with other men. With episodes on men’s role in the feminist movement, how masculinity is portrayed in pop culture, healthy sexuality, dating, and more, “What’s Good, Man?” strives to be a space for honest, critical conversations about what manhood is, but also about what it could be.
In 2020, a mysterious Hawaiian business donated $150,000 to a Super PAC in Maine. The story of who was behind it, and why they sent so much money across the country, takes us down a long and winding road, full of corrupt defense contractors and political dark money. Tony Williams lays out the case, from the donation to the arrests.
Final project for the SALT Institute for Documentary Studies.
If you believe everything you read on the internet, Mankato has one of the biggest hot spring complexes in the world. Only one problem: they aren’t actually there. This rumor was started in the 1990s by Minnesota State University, Mankato Professor Don Descy as a way to teach students about misinformation on the then-burgeoning internet. He created a very real page on city-mankato.us boasting a very fake 17.5 acres of hot springs. The site persists today, and it continues to fool unsuspecting visitors.
