Show Notes

Welcome to BuiltOnAir, a podcast and video series about all things Airtable. Each episode, we talk with someone active in the Airtable community to discuss their experiences and showcase an interesting way they’ve used Airtable in their work.
In this episode we’re joined by cultural advocate, author, and operations specialist, Paul Matsushima. We begin with a discussion of how his background in non-profit work helping establish and expand Japanese-American cultural programs in the LA region led to him co-authoring a children’s book and creating a youth summer camp. We then discuss how his role as an operations specialist led him to use Airtable to quickly organize and automate reporting processes with the aid of Zapier to integrate with other productivity apps. Paul showcases two bases for us, the first being a ledger to track annual financial transactions and the second base being a CRM to track contacts, campaigns, and communications. We get a deep dive on both bases, which are available for public use on the Airtable Universe.
