Season 3 of the BuiltOnAir Podcast just wrapped up last week.
This season our guests came from all over the world with no shortage of amazing airtable skills. From Los Angeles, CA, Austin, Texas, South Carolina and New England to across the way to the UK and Germany. We had guests with incredible artistic abilities, multiple startup founders and app creators, and many that use their incredible skills to help others harness the awesome power that is airtable.
This season has been chalked full of amazing stories and content.
Throughout the season we’ve also seen plenty of demo bases that were all created purposely and with care. We’ve seen bases that help make daily life easier with meal planning and bullet journal bases, ones that help with scheduling, for blog content and that work as a reservation system, and a few demos of new products that create customer portals and help you backup entire airtable bases.
The entire BuiltOnAir team is so thankful and honored to have been able to hear from some wonderful experts and professionals using Airtable in their personal and professional lives. We are also so thankful for our audience, who are the reason we put all this together. Watching the BuiltOnAir podcast grow has been an incredible journey and we can’t wait to see what’s in store for it next.
