Maiden voyage on our new platform!

Welcome to the new digs!

A Vast Improvement…

We will not dwell on it here, but for long-time listeners who may be wondering what happened, we are just gonna give you the Reader’s Digest Version of what went down. Due to increasing philosophical, political, and professional differences with the leadership of our now-former network , we were forced out.

We had actually seen this coming, and had already committed to continuing the show. This put us in the proper mindset to stay positive and keep rolling! Once the split became official, Melanie went right to work finding a new platform for us. She found Spreaker. After setting everything up and running a test, we were nothing less than thrilled at the results.

  • Much more responsive and easier to use than our former platform.
  • Everything is synced and integrated immediately, saving hours of post-production work getting our show on Spotify and other outlets.
  • The sound quality? Like night and day compared to our former platform.  Just listen to one of our earlier podcasts, and you’ll see (and hear) what we mean.

As for Jim, he has increased his output of writing for CounterCulureWISE, and is coming up with great new ideas for future shows and videos. It’s amazing how liberating something like this can be!

For the first time, we fully own the show, and are committed to bringing you a better listening experience than ever.

Welcome to the new CounterCultureWISE!

Catching Up

This was a three-show week! Jim did his Bard at the Bar Thang at a new venue, Lovelady Brewing Company in Henderson. (Terrific people, and delicious beer. Check out their Paleo Porter…yum.) BatB have been asked to return there, so there will be future performances of Shakespeare’s work at both Lovelady and their original haunt, The Velveteen Rabbit. Stay tuned here for future events!

As for Melanie, she did an amazing job with her cohorts at Las Vegas Improvisation Players. If you are a fan of WHOSE LINE IS IT, ANYWAY? and are in Las Vegas on any given 3rd Saturday, check them out. It’s completely family-friendly (a rarity for improv groups in Vegas, or anywhere else).
