Reckoner is an Australian technology podcast from James Croft, Anthony Agius & Raj Deut. Some of our guests might sound familiar, but this show is not about Macs and it’s not about Apple. We’re changing it up. Here’s how we see it: in our hearts, we are all fans of new technology. We get over-excited, we speculate, we grope around at these new ideas and concepts. We love writing about how technology affects us, and affects the world all around us. We wanted to look broader than ever before and deep-dive into some of the ways all this crazy new tech is affecting our culture. Our music habits. Our movies, and TV. Our inability to leave our phones alone. Our theories about Snapchat. Our dumb new diet that we half-read an article on Reddit about. Our families. Our lives.

A unique look at Australian Tech culture
This is the renaissance of Australian tech commentary. Too long sites (and podcasts) have been divided down the line on platform-based allegiances.
Mac vs PC, iOS vs Windows Phone, Microsoft vs Everybody else. Why be dismissive when you can embrace the common threads that bind all tech lovers together?
Reckoner is the tech podcast that Australians deserve, rather than the one they've had to date.
Very entertaining and informative on many fronts including football. Keep it going.
First on my playlist
Reckoner is always first on my playlist especially without the fantasy football discussion at the start. I listen to The Vergecast, NZ Tech, Download This Show and a bunch of ABC RN podcasts.
