Overpriced JPEGs is a show about NFTs and the Metaverse!

Most people think they’re bad art and everyone else can’t stop talking, thinking, and buying them. They’re non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and they’re taking over your Twitter feed.

The blockchain space is moving too fast to keep track of everything that’s happening. Join Carly Reilly, Andrew Yang’s former finance director, for the Overpriced JPEGs podcast from the Bankless network. This is the best way to get the latest NFT and metaverse news and interviews with the people shaping our future, so you can decide for yourself if these are just overpriced JPEGs or technology that will change the world.

Not afraid to press an opposing thesis

I'm tired of softball crypto podcasts that always agree with their guests like wet sock puppets.
This podcast ain't that and actually uses brain cells to surface opposing narratives.
Now if I can figure out a way to get my ape to star in an adult film.
