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 46: Joan
December 26th, 2016 | 49 mins 11 secs
It’s that time again, y’all: another episode of Don’t Give Up, Skeleton is here! This week’s guest is Joan, who I met during the 2016 Duckstream event. She helped me with some Darkest Dungeon advice, and then started hanging out in the Duckfeed Slack, and before I knew it we were chatting bout Souls games on the mic. Joan and I talk about most of the Souls games, and have eerily similar starting builds for some of the games.
Episode 45: Dave Klein
December 24th, 2016 | 59 mins
When I started Don’t Give Up, Skeleton, I did so with the aim of finding people that don’t have a voice in the community already. I wanted to get to people that didn’t already have YouTube channels or podcasts, but I’d be lying if I didn’t hope doing the show would give me the opportunity to interview some of the people that were popular in the community. So when the opportunity came up to chat with Dave Klein, I jumped at it.
Episode 44: Revatar
December 23rd, 2016 | 1 hr 21 mins
Yer a wizard, Richard! Nah, not really. Richard is from the We’re Not Wizards podcast, a delightful show about board games and the people who play them. He and I have become good friends over 2016, and I am very happy to for him to finally guest on this show. Unfortunately, he spends most of his time insulting me and raving about Lords of the Fallen.
Episode 43: Michael A. Cunningham
December 22nd, 2016 | 59 mins 50 secs
We’re baaaaacckkk! Another episode of Don’t Give Up, Skeleton is here to feed your addiction to Souls chat. This week’s guest is Michael A. Cunningham, the editor in chief of RPGamer.com. Michael and I talk about all the Souls games, and he’s unique in that he didn’t particularly care for Dark Souls 1 after playing Demon’s Souls. Weird! Not really, people have all sorts of opinions.
Episode 42: Gibbed
December 21st, 2016 | 53 mins 2 secs
It’s another entry into one of my favorite genres of Don’t Give Up, Skeleton: the technical episodes! You have probably heard of Gibbed before now, but if you haven’t, you’re in for a treat. Not only is he one of the nicest guys in the Souls community, he’s also one of the smartest. He’s got his on Demon’s Souls server setup, he’s broken into the 5th arch stone and brought us back hilarious gifs, and he hacks/mods a ton of other games besides. Seriously, I think this is a great episode.
Episode 41: Alex
December 20th, 2016 | 1 hr 22 mins
That’s right, we’re back with another episode of Don’t Give Up, Skeleton. This week’s guest is Alex, a very charming dude that I heard on BSC a year or two back and had to get on the show. Alex and I have a lot of laughs about the Souls games, Friends, life in general, and everything in between. Spoiler alert: we finally have a show where the guest LOVES Dark Souls 2 and doesn’t particularly care for Bloodborne. Opinions! People have them.
Episode 40: Garrison
December 19th, 2016 | 1 hr 2 mins
It’s a new episode of Don’t Give Up, Skeleton, just for you. This week’s guest is Garrison, a guy I’ve known from the Something Awful Dark Souls threads. We share a love of Bloodborne, Chalice Dungeons, and kitty cats. It’s a great episode, you should totally listen to it.
Episode 39: Sam Bair
December 19th, 2016 | 54 mins 19 secs
It’s a new episode of Don’t Give Up, Skeleton! This week’s guest is Sam Bair, one of my many friends from the DuckfeedTV community. Sam has played most of the Souls games, and we ended up having a great conversation about all of them. Good times!
Episode 38: Eric P
December 18th, 2016 | 31 mins
It’s a special bonus episode of Don’t Give Up, Skeleton. This week’s guest is Eric, a friend of mine from the Duckfeed.tv network. Unfortunately, we lost half of Eric’s audio, so it’s only half of an episode, but it’s just as much fun as a normal episode. This was recorded awhile ago, so enjoy the time warp.
Episode 37: Christopher
December 13th, 2016 | 59 mins 1 sec
Welcome to another episode of Don’t Give Up, Skeleton! This week’s is Christopher, who is a Scottish fellow that I found on Twitter. Christopher and I talk about all sorts of things in this episode: Midevil Italian Poetry, Midnight Resistance, Skyrim, and….oh yeah! Souls games! Christopher is another dad who has played with his kid in his lap, a concept that I absolutely adore. Enjoy the episode!
Episode 36: Niki
December 6th, 2016 | 1 hr 36 mins
It’s another episode of Don’t Give Up, Skeleton! This week’s guest is a friend from tumblr, Niki. Niki started out with Dark Souls 2 and has since fallen in love with the series. She’s pretty evil when it come to PVP (worse than me, even), and has a significant love for Bloodborne. So much so that she asked to come back on the show after she finished the DLC. That’s right! This is an EXTRA LONG episode, so stay tuned after the credits at the end for a extra content.
Episode 35: Scott
November 29th, 2016 | 1 hr 19 mins
It’s a new episode of Don’t Give Up, Skeleton! This week’s guest is Scott, who is a very big Dark Souls fan. In between the time we recorded this episode and the time it’s releasing, he started his own podcast called Inside People, which you can find at the link below. Me and Scott have a fun conversation about all the Souls games, I’ll think you’ll like it. Be sure to stick around at the end to hear Scott’s song about Dark Sun Gwendolyn.
Episode 34: Graham
November 20th, 2016 | 57 mins 35 secs
It’s a new episode of Don’t Give Up, Skeleton! This week’s guest is Graham, an excellent person I met on the Duckfeed.TV Slack (take a drink). We talk about ALL of the Souls games, and yes we gush over our great Bloodborne is. Plus! Food chat!
Episode 33: Peter Cleaves
November 15th, 2016 | 51 mins 6 secs
Hello skeletons! This week’s guest is Peter Cleaves! You probably know Peter from his Twitter, where he is a delightful personality. Or you may know him from his work at Sony, where he has personally blocked the HD remake of Demon’s Souls from ever happening (I kid, I kid!). Peter was a great guest, and has an interesting origin story for the Souls series. I think you’ll like it a lot.
Episode 32: Teresa
November 6th, 2016 | 53 mins 42 secs
A new episode is here, skeletons! This week’s guest is Teresa, a delightful person that likes riding bikes, knitting, and killing people with Karmic Justice in Dark Souls PVP. She’s also unique on this podcast in that she doesn’t particularly care for Bloodborne (don’t worry, we’ll convert her to our side soon). I’ve known Teresa for a few years now, so I’m happy to have finally gotten to know her a bit more. I’m sure you’ll enjoy it as well.
