Jeremy became addicted to the Souls games in 2011. Originally bouncing off of Demon's Souls, he started up Dark Souls 1 and it was all downhill from there. After finishing the game multiple times, he tried out the multiplayer component and became addicted again. Fascinated with the PVP scene, he went on to create Dark Souls Haters, a Tumblr dedicated to collecting all the horrible messages he was getting from killing people in Dark Souls, as well as his own YT channel showing off his trolling method.
Shortly afterwards he was invited to guest on Bonfireside Chat, a brand new podcast from the Duckfeed.TV network. He caught the podcast bug, and guested on every season after that, although it wasn't until 2016 that he became a regular host on Dark Insight, an international gaming show. Shortly afterwards he launched this podcast, Don't Give Up Skeleton, and hasn't been able to stop himself from talking about Souls games since.
Nowadays Jeremy splits his time between this show and his other two podcasts. Monster of the Week is primarily a podcast about the TV show Supernatural, but has branched off into covering a wide variety of topics. Days of Future Cast is show that started covering the 90s X-Men cartoon, but has become a show where Jeremy and his co-host Gary take on X-Men and Marvel media in general.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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:

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.

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.
