Rich Butler is an NYC product through and through. Born in the Bronx and raised in Queens, NY, Rich is one of four children, with three of the four children adopted by his mother, Irma. Irma was a career foster parent specializing in raising children with special needs. Irma officially adopted Rich a few weeks before her passing in 2000 after raising him since he was an infant when his biological mother gave him away. Rich continued paying his mother's work forward by becoming the guardian of his two adoptive special needs sisters and raising them currently with help from his brother. When not working on growing RAGE Works or the podcast network, Rich can found spending time with his wife and young daughter.
Richard is a fifteen-year podcasting veteran who got the podcast bug after appearing on Video Game News Radio and the CSS podcast in Canada as a guest. He started the My Take Radio podcast in 2006, covering mixed martial arts, pro wrestling, gaming, and entertainment. After some podcasting burnout, Rich relaunched My Take Radio as a live call-in show via Blog Talk Radio airing every Thursday from 11 PM to 2 AM. During that time, Rich interviewed various fighters, actors, wrestlers, and entertainment personalities, but the rigors of a three-hour broadcast were taking their toll. So Rich decided to start to do the show twice per week and continued that until the show's 400th episode. The My Take Radio brand morphed into RAGE Works throughout the podcast journey and served as a foundation for the RAGE Works Podcast Network serving as its flagship podcast.
The staff from My Take Radio and later RAGE Works got the podcast bug and launched their own podcasts on the network with many shows already in the triple digits of episodes. Rich continues to grow the network and is always on the hunt for unique and diverse voices who can resonate with the RAGE Works audience.
