I don’t quite know

“I don’t quite know” is a new podcast that Reckoner is extremely proud of and something we’ve wanted to for quite some time now. It’s designed to be a conversation between its host, Raj Deut, and an online personality that you’ll most likely already know.

As to what they discuss, well that’s where the name of the show comes into place because we don’t quite know. The idea being they chat about something our guest isn’t particularly known for and not what work they’re doing at the time the show is recorded but it still relevant and interesting to the listener.

New episodes are scheduled to be released monthly exclusive to supporters of our Patreon campaign, with some then re-released at a later date supported by partners to the general public.
