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 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.
Episode 31: Naiyt
November 1st, 2016 | 50 mins
Hello Skeletons! This week’s guest is Naiyt. Naiyt is the current owner and operator of MugenMonkey.com, THE place to craft your Souls builds. It’s a build planning site for all of the Souls games, and is insanely useful for PVE or PVP builds. We have a fun conversation about how he approaches the game, and of course I can’t help myself but get into some nitty gritty details.
Episode 30: Aikao
October 24th, 2016 | 46 mins 54 secs
Hello again skeletons! This week we are talking with Aikao, who is a huge Souls fan. We talk about the games, of course, and also get into how to successfully moderate a reddit sub that has 100,000 members. I find another Chalice friend, proving that Chalices are the secret sauce that everyone likes despite being seeing as bad. That’s a terrible metaphor, but whatever, Chalices are GREAT. Enjoy the episode! See lots of links below:
Episode 28: Kole Ross
October 17th, 2016 | 57 mins 38 secs
That’s right, skeletons! This week is yet another TWOFER week on Don’t Give Up, Skeleton. The first episode is my interview with Kole Ross, who definitely doesn’t need an introduction. You all know who he is: Watch Out For Fireballs, Bonfireside Chat, Duckfeed.TV. Kole was nice enough to sit down with me and talk about his journey through the Souls series, and some other lesser known FROM Software games. Enjoy the episode, and Watch Out For Another Episode Soon.
Episode 29: Gary Butterfield
October 17th, 2016 | 54 mins 26 secs
As promised, here’s a whole other episode in the same week! And look who it’s with: Gary Butterfield! You might know him from Duckfeed.tv, Watch Out For Fireballs, or Bonfireside Chat. Gary and I sit down and talk about the real issues: why did it take him so long to play Dark Souls? I’ll let the rest come out in the episode. Enjoy, skeletons.
Episode 27: Misanthrobob
October 12th, 2016 | 56 mins 17 secs
Welcome back, skeletons! This week is another great Don’t Give Up, Skeleton. Robert is a podcaster and game reviewer living in England. We had a lengthy conversation about all things Souls, and even spend some time going into some older From Software games. I think you’ll like it!
Episode 26: AllisonByProxy
October 5th, 2016 | 1 hr 5 mins
Hello again, skeletons. This week’s guest is AllisonByProxy! If you’v been paying attention to the Dark Souls community for awhile, you probably have heard of Allison or seen her work. She created LegoDarkSouls, has guested on multiple episodes of Bonfireside Chat, and is an all around great person. We talk about her Souls origin stories, and just how great all of these games are. It’s a good episode, so strap in, folks.
Episode 25: Paolo
September 28th, 2016 | 1 hr 20 secs
A new episode, skeletons! Cast yourselves back to the week of E3 2016. Myself and Paolo, this week’s guest, jump on a microphone and start talking. The first thing I learn is that he’s a graphic programmer for Sony Santa Monica, and that he’s working on God of War. The second thing I learn is that he worked on Firewatch as well. The third thing I learned is that he LOVES the Souls series. We’ve had some enthusiastic guests on before, but Paolo is on a whole new level. This is one you’ll enjoy.
