The show is excellent because of Ren. He has a good on-air personality. The new radio Jonny they brought in is close to unlistenable. He has such bad instincts from his years in that business. Scared to talk about ANY controversy, constantly saying clichés, and has a big annoying radio voice. My man, this is not how an ordinary person talks. Just talk like two guys just hanging out, and the show will be 10x better.
Love the new podcast and the intro song but maybe you could shorten it by a few minutes? We want to listen to you guys not the intro song.
The charm of the show when Brent was on, was the chemistry built up organically over time between the two host. They complimented each other. This new guy, Steve; I’m sure he a great guy and a wonderful producer, but he’s not a great host. Or, at least, not a great fit for the show as we know it. To a lesser extent, he’s the FNG, but seems to dominate the conversation and is robotic in his ad reads. A regular Scott smith. No thanks. Please audition other hosts and prioritize fun, not professionalism.
I think this podcast is criminally underrated and I really appreciate the honesty that Ren does somewhat as a fan/analyst and also the energy Brent brings as a true diehard Bucs fan/Host. I listen to all of the other major Bucs podcasts out there but whenever they release a pewter cast episode I’m always pumped up. Keep up the great work guys, the show has developed so much over the years and I’m excited to see where you can take it moving forward. Also the instant reaction podcasts after the games are awesome, especially after the dubs. Writing a review is the least I could do for how much I have enjoyed your content over the years.
I’m fairly new to the Bucs podcast world. I’ve done a fair share of shopping around and this one consistently keeps me coming back and looking forward to the next Pod. I’m intrigued with the live broadcast they do so I’ll be getting on that action soon. Love the chemistry and dedication to putting out good content. Keep it up!
Love the Bucs and all the podcasts, this one just seems to hit home. Love Ren and Brent. Keep up the good work and maybe I’ll call in one day.
A terrific deep dive into the post game,a deeper look into the game midweek,and a potpourri of news at the end of the week.Their fans,but they don’t look at things with Rose Colored Glasses.
I’ve been listening since 2017 and haven’t missed too many pods. Love the content and the variety that each pod brings. I understand that you can go out there and get more X’s and O’s in other pods which I listen to also but this is the one I always come back too. There is more balance of that coupled with how an average fan feels week to week. The banter and differences in personality type between Ren and Brent is super entertaining. Love them both and completely understand the roll each plays. Wouldn’t be the same without them both. Thanks and keep it up
Just started listening a month or two ago and I really love how thorough you are. You comment on almost all the questions I have about my team. I’ll be listening for a long time to come
Started listening to this podcast after that clown “the commish” got popped. Love the vibe and actual buc football these guys provide. Very refreshing takes around all that is Buccaneers football.
I’ve been listening to the podcast since the beginning of the season and these guys do a great job in covering what’s going on with this abysmal team. They always have a fun spin on what it’s like to be a Bucs fan. Id recommend this podcast for anyone wanting to keep up to date with the Bucs.
Production is great. Ren is an old school fan and knows Bucs history, Brent not so much. It seems as if Brent is responsible for the production quality and guides the ship but Ren is the one who really knows X’s&O’s. They are very consistent with the show scheduled and are definitely my favorite Bucs podcast. The guys have good chemistry and the shows are very entertaining plus the guest they bring on are great. If you’re looking for a quality Bucs podcast this is the one for you.
Being from the San Francisco Bay Area we don’t get a lot of Bucs coverage unless they’re playing a local team. About a year ago I stumbled onto this podcast and have been listening ever since. I have been a Bucs fan since I was a kid and fell in love with the creamsicles. If you’re not from Florida and are a fan of the Bucs you need to listen and then subscribe. Thanks for all the hard work. Manuel
Hey it’s Eric out in San Diego. Also the title. JUST KIDDING! This is a fantastic podcast that does an exceptional job of providing great content while also letting the listener know that “hey we’re fans too”. If you follow a lot of Bucs media you’ll see Ren sends questions in to everyone (Stroud pod and buccaneers live) so that he can get the answers for the listeners. Also the quality of this podcast is second to none. Well done overall guys! Also Ren... when are we trading for Ramsey 😉
I’ve been a subscriber for about a year and you guys do an excellent job of discussing the latest news and analysis of our Bucs each week. Each morning when there is a new Pewtercast available, it starts my day off right, even if the Bucs just lost! Haha Keep it up and maybe soon I’ll call in with a voicemail! For Bucs fans, when you are reading this review and haven’t decided yet on subscribing, give Brent and Ren a shot, you’ll be happy having The Pewtercast on your playlist.
Can you guys work in deeper explanations of what the Bucs are doing on Defense? Explain the coverages, # pass rushers, scheme, etc. Break the film down, if you will. Thanks!
I’ve been trying out a few different Bucs podcast, you guys are top of the line. You guys can still improve tho. 👌
Very good, informative and entertaining listen from two knowledgeable Bucs fans. Also have some great guests visit and contribute on some shows. As a fellow Bucs fan I appreciate their passion and devotion, and the good discussion going into and coming out of every game...and then some. Thanks guys, and keep up the excellent work! 👍
With due respect to PN pod and Bucs Nation these guys have well thought out takes and will not say something if they truly don't believe it. Warning: it may take a few episodes but you will learn to love Ren. There is a method to his insanity.
Just downloaded the podcast after the Niner game. Maybe I’m simply irritated by the loss, but literally had to spend 2 minutes of you choking on your own saliva. You edited out 20 seconds... when you grabbed water, but why did you keep the rest? Time is precious, we don’t need to hear you gasping for air.... hope ur ok BTW. Go Bucs!
Highly recommend this great Bucs podcast. The above is true, but I really just wanted to get on the podcast by leaving this review.
The guy has good content - when he doesn’t have on boring guests - but he needs to spend $20 on a decent microphone. Also maybe invest another few dollars on a p-popper filter. Also turn the volume up. Yeah lost of complaints but the camp notes are interesting - it’s just too bad it’s such a half-a%#ed production, since spending like 2 mins on production and less than $25 would make it sound good. Finally the guests are awful - just boring people saying boring things. They’re not needed. Anywho I hope things get figured out since this would be the best Bucs podcast out there with just a tiny amount of work - which is currently being wasted as people will hear what sounds like a guy spitting into a telephone and just give up listening.
Even in the off season, these guys are great. Ren and brent are funny, entertaining, and very knowledgable. Easy 5/5.
If you can get over that Brent knows very little about football in general and that Ren is a narcissist, this is a halfway decent podcast. Bucs related and funny. They put out lots of content and are on top of the latest things Bucs. Just don’t expect news worthy scoops you couldn’t find on a random Bucs fans twitter page. 3 stars for being fun to listen to and one star for coverage of the team.
Have been listening to these guys since prior to last season. They're the epitome of a well done fan podcast. There a couple other ones out there that aren't cranked upstream fests, and the PewterCast guys tend to crossover with the good ones. Bottomline - good production, strong analysis, no pretense, and worth a portion of your content consumption budget.
This was one of the first Bucs podcast I started listening to and it still is one of the best I have found. They take you through the whole week from pregame to post and have ate very entertaining. Keep up the good work and GO BUCS!!!!!!
As a long-suffering Bucs fan, it’s always a pleasure to listen to this duo extend my suffering with recaps and previews. My name is Todd and I’m a Bucaholic. I know the Bucs are bad for me, but I’m addicted. I try to quit, only to turn on iTunes and see great podcasts like the Pewtercast tempt me back to the bottle of long-suffering. I consume. I get riled up. I swear to quit (again). Step and repeat. Seriously, I always enjoy Pewtercast...especially the instacasts. Good job. I have nothing negative to say...except that Ren (sp?) is wrong about Jameis. There’s now year’s worth of excuses...over it. I want to be entertained, not kicked in the balls with his perpetual poor decision making. Cheers!
My last name is Williams not smith haha .... not calling for Buckner to be the head coach just if the DLine improve from last season his job should be safe (hopefully) . Do you think a 3-4 scheme will fit with the personal we have? Penn State is roughly a 3 hour drive. And if you could pick the head coach OC and DC who would you choose? I would pick Jumbo fisher OC Jim Schwartz DC Keep Dirk as head coach Once again love the podcast keep up the good work
