What does CounterCultureWISE mean, anyway?

Our name is a combination of counter-clockwise and counter-culture. We purposefully go counter to the mainstream victim/anger narrative by laughing at them.

Join Mélanie Hope, author of Get Over it & Get Started and What’s Wrong with These People? and James Moniz, author/actor/Marine for a powerful show full of positive people, crazy news, self-empowerment…and a few political rants.

We invite guests who embody these concepts through their work, their works, and their words — even if we disagree. Heck, especially if we disagree. We offer shameless plugs of their current projects and a forum for their free speech. If you’d like to be a guest on our show, fill out the guest form.
