If you work around or with contractors, there are a few basic terms and principles you should know. Most of us don't get a crash course unless we manage contracts. That's where Paul Schauer comes in. He is the co-host of the Contracting Officer's podcast.

Don't be fooled by the title. This show offers tons of knowledge for newbies, as well as experienced contracting officers. 

Listen to his podcast on your podcast app, or find it here:

Paul worked for the Department of Defense for many years before leaving government and working for defense contractors. Now that he speaks both languages fluently, he bridges the gap between govvies and private industry professionals to ensure both make the most out of the contract experience.
