Joke for you

Awesome podcast. Very informative and entertaining. I have a joke for your show you Can use. What’s the last part of the body to die? The pupils. They die late.

Funny, thoughtful insights into everything Salesforce

The Wizardcast does a great job of talking about a wide variety of topics related to Salesforce. Don’t be fooled- it’s not specifically about Process Builder or Flows (although Brian gets quite excited when they start talking Flow- watch out for the episodes where he talks about the new flow builder!). This blog helped me as someone who has used Salesforce for several years, but was just getting to know the “ecosystem.”

Amberge9904 ,

Love these guys!

Just the right amount of puns, horrible jokes, and useful Salesforce knowledge. I <3 these guys!
