John Rietcheck, MA, AuD

John Rietcheck, MA, AuD, is a clinical audiologist with a master’s degree from the University of Kansas and a doctorate from Salus University’s College of Audiology. He recently retired from the San Francisco VA Health Care System after twenty-nine years in hearing health care. He’s worked as a reporter for the Red Rock News in Sedona, AZ, and served as an editor of newsletters for local nonprofit organizations for a combined twenty years in both Topeka, KS, and San Francisco, CA.


John met Susan Wong through a mutual connection, and they soon became fast friends. Although they worked in different domains, their work with patients in the health-care arena provided them a common bond. When Susan and Julien asked John if he would like to write scripts for Butt Talks TV and later contribute his skills to this book, it seemed like a natural transition from all his years of writing in both official and unofficial capacities.


In his personal life, John is a singer and songwriter who has written and recorded many of his songs on two music albums. Now a resident of northern Nevada near Lake Tahoe, he enjoys cooking, reading, hiking, and playing disc golf.
