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.

Thanks, Mom!

We celebrate moms, good news, and some absurdity on a rainy day in Texas.


Thank You (Memorial Day 2024)

We deep dive into the cesspool that is the soon to be former BSA, share some news of the Weird, Wonderful, and Wicked, make fun of Florida Man, and say goodbye to a Marine. May this Memorial Day find your family peaceful and whole.



As most of Central Texas is under water, we figure we’ll celebrate the fifth of May with some Trump, Hulk Hogan, and a bit of nudity.


Matchu Talking About?

We go on about the hilarity of the most visible and profitable pretend trans running away to a country that immediately declared him insane, because we’re mean that way. We mostly share news of the Weird & Wonderful with a bit of the Wicked.


Holy Crap, This is Actually Happening — Cinco de Mayday Edition, May 8, 2024

Pro-Hamas protestors need more brown people, apparently, but at least they’re not xenophobic like most of the East, according to the Cabbage in Chief. Thomas Massie dodges Ukrainian flags on the floor, but might still go to jail for reading the Bible. Biden continues his election meddling, though it seems to be melting like his face. Still, he struggles to maintain eye contact with the plebs. The US absolutely, positively has no boots on the ground in Gaza (wink).


When Left Does Right

We’ll give credit where credit is due, even if they’re Democrats and did it by accident…
