Don't Give Up Skeleton: A Dark Souls and Bloodborne Podcast
About the Show
Don't Give Up, Skeleton is a podcast inspired by one simple question: how did you get into the Souls games? Every week, Jeremy Greer interviews a guest about their own personal Souls story. Guests include a wide variety of people, both well known on the internet and completely unknown. Each episode is a bit different, with guests discussing what the games mean to them, whether it be a technical look into the inner workings, how NPC quest lines mirror personal relationships, fun and exciting lore stories, or lengthy discussions about the music in the games.

Episode 97: Joe Donnelly
November 1st, 2017 | 50 mins 36 secs
This week we have Joe Donnelly on the show! Joe is a writer for PC Gamer and a huge Souls fan. He and I sat down a few months ago, ostensibly to talk Souls but it ended up going all over the place. It's a real fun conversation! Unfortunately, the audio gods weren't smiling when we recorded, so Joe's audio is a bit rough in places. On top of that, we lost a good 5-10 minutes of audio right in the middle. I still think it's a great episode, though, so why are you still reading this? Go listen!

Barry and I talk about his progress through the games, what it was like playing Demon's Souls last, and why his partner hates the Souls games now. Y'all are gonna enjoy this one! Thanks for listening, skellies.

October 18th, 2017 | 1 hr 5 mins
This week's guest is Jessi, an extremely filthy wizard and now co-host of the Salt Report podcast (seriously, go listen to the Salt Report podcast, it's extremely good and funny, and is entirely made up of former guests of this show). Jessi is an illustrator and artist who hasn't played all the games, but approaches them from a unique perspective. She agreed to sit down with me and discuss her funny names for Bloodborne bosses, why Souls handles women and gender so well, and to bring up friend-of-the-show Niki approximately 100000 times. Enjoy!
