OPJ - 1st Edition
OPJ began as a thank you gift to listeners and guests of the Overpriced JPEGs podcast. We got so much great feedback that we’re opening it up to everyone. Our goal is to push the boundaries of web3 brand-building, while ~surprising and delighting~ our holders at every turn.

About Overpriced JPEGs
Overpriced JPEGs is a leading podcast and newsletter covering NFTs, web3, and the creator economy. The title started as a cheeky commentary on people who misunderstand NFTs (“they’re just overpriced jpegs”). But now it is a commentary on… everything. Where does “value” come from? Beyond the basics (food, water, shelter), why does anyone buy $500 sweaters, $100 bottles of wine, $50 baseball cards, or $10 million paintings? Everything is overpriced to someone. The Overpriced brand is about moving beyond naive understandings of web3. It’s about being misunderstood, contrarian, and a little irreverent. If you’re gonna drink at all, it might as well be Overpriced.
