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.

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.

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.

We’re back skeletons! This week we are joined by Liam, a delightful Australian who loves music and Dark Souls. We immediately get off topic into some music talk, but bring it around back to Souls quickly enough. I need to toss an all caps WARNING into the notes for this one, since Liam talks about some pretty dark times in his life. If you are sensitive to talk about alcohol abuse, you might want to skip this episode.

That’s right, this week’s guest is the second founder of YouDied.co.uk, Gav Weir! We talk about everything Souls, as usual, starting with the lack of a thorough Dark Souls wiki. I promise, it’s explained in the episode. Be warned, Gav and I apparently suffered some major memory loss during this episode, as neither of us were able to remember some pretty common names. It happens, folks.

Skeletons! Today’s guest is Gav Russell, one of the two people behind YouDied.co.uk. Gav and I share a very hungover conversation that is none-the-less chock full of jokes and chat about Dark Souls, and probably a bunch of other stuff too (look, I said I was hungover, give me a break over here).

Welcome back, skeletons! The guest for episode 21 is Suvesh. He doesn’t have a lot of history with games, but when he came across the Souls series for the first time he was hooked. He went on to play all five games so far within a year. A year! That’s crazy. Enjoy the episode!

Hello skeletons! This week’s guest is Fiona, a name you probably aren’t familiar with. Despite playing FROM software games with her brother since the PS1 days, she hasn’t really had a presence in the Souls community. I have a feeling that’s about to change, though. Fiona and I chat Souls for awhile, and then she starts laying down some serious lore.

Hello again skeletons! We’re back with another episode of Don’t Give Up, Skeleton. This week’s guest is my good friend Layne, who I met on (you guessed it) on the Duckfeed Slack. We talk about all sorts of Souls, being a dad, and probably some other stuff as well.

Welcome to another episode of Don’t Give Up, Skeleton! This week we are joined by Adam, a relatively new Souls player. Adam was given a copy of Dark Souls 1 by Emily B (remember episode 8 with Emily?) and has been hooked ever since. Enjoy the episode!

Hello again Skeletons! This week's guest is Leonard, aka DrFaustIsDead. Leonard is a great guy that I met via the Duckfeed group, and has started his own series of "lore plays" videos for Dark Souls 3. See the link below to catch them. Leonard and I had a delightful conversation about all things Souls, so sit back, relax, and let the podcast roll.

NeoLoki makes incredible YouTube videos based on the Souls series. They have a very unique and creepy aesthetic that you just don't normally see. This conversation was recorded a few days before Dark Souls III was released. We talked about marketing the game, NeoLoki's history of making videos, how he came to the Souls series, and all sorts of things in between. His personal connection to the stories of Dark Souls II will change the way you think about that game, and can change the way you think about how games in general.
