Why the podcast World Web Stories is unique?
World Web Stories (WWS) was first created in 2017 by David Dias. The original concept was to interview people with atypical path and working in the Internet industry. Only 5 episodes were aired with the particularity to all done in French.
In 2021, in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic, David Dias revamp the initial concept and decided to interview people passionate or working with Internet from all countries in the world!
Finding people in some countries may probably be more challenging than others but World Web Stories wants to give the opportunity to people to share their stories and what it means to work with the web where they live.

How the website was built?
The World Web Stories website was created by David Dias using Gatsby, which is a React static generator. The code is on Github and hosted on Netlify. WWS is also using Tailwind for the CSS, big shoutout to Adam Wathan and the whole community behind the project.
I also use these external services / tools:
- Cloudinary: for most of the images, gives me a lot of flexibility and ways to optimize, crop etc...
- Mailchimp: for sending automatic emails to guests and for the newsletter
- Airtable: for managing guests and episodes
- Zapier: to automate tasks between Airtable and Mailchimp
