Season 5 of the BuiltOnAir Podcast just wrapped up last week.
Throughout Season 5 of the BuiltOnAir Podcast, we had the opportunity to chat with some pretty talented guests and learn some cool tips and tricks to store in our back pocket when using Airtable. Our guests this season were CEO’s, developers, community leaders in the Airtable forums, hobbyists, and even a Genealogist. All of them brought unique content and shared incredibly creative ways to work with, and around, Airtable.
To summarize, this season has been jam-packed with Airtable talent.
Along with getting to meet some extremely talented individuals, we were able to see the fruits of their labor in the demo bases they shared with us. We saw a range of bases that were aimed at community outreach, productivity, and many that were geared for personal use like tracking your family history, playing games, and tracking your movie and music habits. All of them brought a different use case for Airtable in their own unique way.
Our team here at BuiltOnAir is constantly taken back by all the stories and awesome Airtable skills that we get to see first hand. We are always thankful for the privilege to meet so many wonderful people and for our ever-growing audience. This season we have been able to reach even more listeners from all around the world and for that, we are especially grateful.
