Celebrating 200 Episodes of CRM Zen

Can we just start by saying, thank you. We wouldn’t be the show we are today without the awesome community of supporters of the show. And wow, what a journey it has been. As we hit our 200th episode we thought we would share the evolution and some highlights of the show over the last few years since its launch in July of 2018.

Rewind back to the beginning of the show, it was actually called “Zoho Zen – This Week in Zoho”, but after a few short episodes and a cease and desist letter, the show was rebranded to what it is today, The CRM Zen Show. After 83 episodes of the podcast, we jumped from just audio to adding video, bringing the show to YouTube. And around 100 episodes after that, we switched to producing the show via YouTube Livestream.

Mondays, rain or shine, holiday or not, we’ve never missed a beat. Along with the weekly show also comes our Zenatta & CRM Zen Show weekly newsletter. Dropped simultaneously with the show every Monday, we have slowly expanded it over the years. At first, we were covering the news, a brief tip, and an extension. Over time, we’ve added code shares, implementations, reads, blogs, and more to every episode. Oh, and did we mention the occasional Cobra News?

Zoho also deserves a huge shoutout. Their teams never rest. As we hit 200 episodes, there has never been a dull week of news. And without all of their hard work and dedication to the product suite we all vest our companies in, this show wouldn’t exist. Seriously guys, hats off to you. Keep it up!

Entertaining has also been a big emphasis of the show. We have fun, and though we do cover the news, if you watch the show you know that our two cents on the matter oftentimes aren’t without some comedy.

Now, we don’t want to leave out all of the amazing guests we have had on the show over the years. From fellow Zoho partners such as John-Mark Bantock from Catalyst Connect, and Vinu Rajendran from Nimbus Designs, to Zoho Chief Evangelist Raju Vegesna. It has been a ton of fun over the years to have all of you on the show, and if you are reading this and want to be on the show, don’t hesitate to drop us a line!

With all of that being said, thanks again everyone for the love and support, and here’s to hopefully at least another 200 more to come! Cheers!
