Don't Give Up Skeleton: A Dark Souls and Bloodborne Podcast

Everyone has their own story about Dark Souls. What's yours?

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.

Episodes

  • Episode 20: Fiona

    August 30th, 2016  |  1 hr 9 mins

    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.

  • Episode 19: Layne

    August 23rd, 2016  |  54 mins 7 secs

    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.

  • Episode 18: Adam B

    August 16th, 2016  |  52 mins 2 secs

    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!

  • Episode 17: Rosie

    August 8th, 2016  |  52 mins 34 secs

    Hello Skeletons! This week’s guest is Rosie, a wo…

  • Episode 16: Leonard AKA DrFaustIsDead

    August 3rd, 2016  |  58 mins 16 secs

    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.

  • Episode 15: NeoLoki

    July 23rd, 2016  |  52 mins 20 secs

    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.

  • Episode 14: Paddy Stardust

    July 18th, 2016  |  1 hr 18 mins

    What?! That’s right, this week there are TWO episodes of Don’t Give Up, Skeleton for your ears to enjoy. I decided to make this a Twin Humanities themed week and post Paddy’s episode the same day as CJ’s. This one was recorded after we had both finished Dark Souls 3, so expect lots and lots of spoilers. Also, Paddy confesses his favorite game of all time is Lords of the Fallen! :o If you’d like to come onto the podcast and chat, send me an email to dguspodast@gmail.com with your Souls story, and we’ll see about making it happen.

  • Episode 13: CoffeeJezus

    July 18th, 2016  |  1 hr 14 mins

    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 dguspodast@gmail.com with your Souls story, and we’ll see about making it happen.

  • Episode 12: Ali

    July 12th, 2016  |  56 mins 59 secs

    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 11: Stephen

    July 5th, 2016  |  1 hr 1 min

    Episode 11 is here! Stephen is another guest from the Duckfeed community, and was a blast to sit down and talk with. There are lots of spoilers in this one, so watch out if you haven't finished DS3 or the Bloodborne DLC. Be sure to listen for some amazing Bloodborne music that was performed live.

  • Episode 10: Bryan Wade

    June 28th, 2016  |  1 hr 1 min

    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!

  • Episode 9: Thomas

    June 21st, 2016  |  39 mins 28 secs

    Episode 09 is here! This week we sit down with Thomas, a very friendly Swedish man who shares my love for Karmic Justice, as well as Dark Souls in general. He tells the story of how a famous Japanese streamer got him into Souls, and what he's been doing since.
