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.

My Pa!

Tonight we celebrate dads in the start of our 8th season. We check in on some fun news, weird news, naughty news, and ridiculous goings-on. Happy Father’s Day!


Saving Brandon’s Privates

We delve into what D-Day really means, celebrate some dinosaur poo, and share lots of Florida Man stories that will make you laugh, then worry about society. We wrap it up with stories that restore your faith in society.


Black Pilled

Melanie is pretty black pilled about the fall of the Republic at the hand of fascists who pretend they’re Democrats, but Jim is still optimistic that we can vote the bums out. We poke fun at washed up actor De Niro and insane real estate agents, plus lots of news of the Weird, Wonderful, and Wicked.


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.
