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.

But, hey, it'll be good for you

The Community Development Podcast is brought to you by Russell Todd (@llannerch)

It's 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 throw a spotlight onto different examples of Community Development practice and delve into the theory.
