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.

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.

Welcome to Don’t Give Up, Skeleton Episode 13, featuring CoffeeJesus! CJ is one half of the Twin Humanities podcast, and one of the most genuinely funny guys I know. This episode was recorded in the long long ago, before Dark Souls 3 was released, so enjoy a look into what CJ and I were thinking DS3 was going to be. We didn’t even know we should complain about the lack of poise yet! If you’d like to come onto the podcast and chat, send me an email to email@example.com with your Souls story, and we’ll see about making it happen.

Welcome back to Don’t Give Up, Skeleton! Today’s guest is Ali, a man who has more hours in Souls games than anyone I’ve ever heard of. He’s also one of the most earnest people I’ve ever talked to for this podcast. It was a blast to record with him, and hopefully he’ll get to come over to the US and do his Blues Pilgrimage. That’s right, this dude lives in Kuwait but plays the Blues like a man who’s been working on the Mississippi river all his life. Stay tuned after the episode for a taste.

Episode 10 is here! This week's guest is Bryan Wade, another friend from the Duckfeed.TV network. Bryan and I have known each other as "internet friends" for a few years now, and I think that comes out on this episode. We talk all sorts of Souls games, as well as a handful of other games as well. Also! There's a ~bonus~ section! Bryan was so inspired by DGUS episodes that he went back to Bloodborne and gave it another try. Listen past the closing music and credits to hear the special addendum we recorded. Enjoy!

Hello there! This week we are joined by Katherine, who reached out after I released the very first episode of this podcast. Up till now, I have been interviewing people that I already knew and had already spoken to. Katherine was an absolute delight to talk to, and I think this is a great episode. We go into how she got started with the series, where she went wrong at first, and where she is now.
