Janey Williams

Janey Williams is the creator of the podcast This Happened, and has also produced for Scene On Radio and UnFictional. As a speaker at the 2019 Late Night Provocations, Janey will talk about how, while interviewing friends about their reactions to her sexual assault, she discovered an underlying blind spot in her friends, by extrapolation, in her society, and, shockingly, in herself.

Williams has a B.A. in Cultural Anthropology, and an M.A. in Latin American Studies with an emphasis on Cultural Transformation and Development. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband and sons, and recorded her most recent story while holding her newborn in studio.


Our favorite tradition on the opening night of the Third Coast Conference.... this time, with some SPOOKY energy!
