So, here it is: The Community Development Podcast brought to you by Russell Todd (@llannerch)

A podcast dedicated to Community Development practice; to sharing its learning; connecting its practitioners; and promoting its value.

It's based in Wales in the United Kingdom but with horizons much further. 

We'll be sharing different examples of Community Development practice and delving into its theory.

You will be told that you are shaping the direction of The CD Podcast and its content. Except you aren't.

You'll be paid lip-service and hollow platitudes; you will have no influence or power at all and will be merely rubber-stamping things; you will actually, unwittingly, be re-enforcing unequal power structures and subtly be educated in maintaining the status quo.

But, gee, thanks for coming.

Join us! Come on board! Let us help you!

Once you do, we'll dress up as 'participation' our efforts to cure you of your pathology, while we masquerade behind a pretence of effecting actual change.

But, hey, it'll be good for you

You absolutely have rights, responsibilities and options when it comes to The CD Podcast! Don't let anyone tell you differently.

And here they are...

Sorry, you want to suggest an alternative? Hmm, not sure about that. Maybe you can come to a public meeting. If so, please fill in this application form stating your motives for wanting to attend.

Meanwhile, can we sign-off these rights, responsibilities and options?
Consultation
$5 or more per creation 0 patrons
Ok, so you're interested in what The CD Podcast is trying to achieve. This is how I think we might go about but I'm interested in what you think.

Please fill in this questionnaire to validate, or otherwise, how I think I should go about.

You look like the right sort to join The CD Podcast Action Group with officials and elected representatives, i.e., someone who could be out-foxed and easily blinded by technical or legal jargon.

Your participation and involvement will look great and will probably be helpful in keeping the community onside; and hopefully you won't kick up too much of a fuss.
Partnership
$8 or more per creation 0 patrons
As The CD Podcast develops and gains in popularity, power will begin to be re-distributed beyond those who traditionally hold it. Indeed, you will take it and not be bequeathed it.

You will have bargaining influence over outcomes, power to veto and access to resources such as money, knowledge, or legal and technical expertise.

Things might get tectchy between us on occasions. Hopefully, I'll have a higher authority to refer matters who will side with me if things get too hot under my collar.
Delegated Power
$9 or more per creation 0 patrons
Ok, so you can begin to run the show most of the time. You can have a majortiy of the seats and specified powers.

The wider community has begun to feel empowered and is more trusting of the policy and development landscape.
Citizen Control
$10 or more per creation 0 patrons
Congratulations on attaining the highest leevl of participation. This is it. The people are in charge. There are no intermediaries between them and apparatus of the central state. They are accountable, self-determining, self-actualizing and in power.

Except, is there such a thing as absolute control?
