A contract is a meeting of the mind and can be validated by a handshake

Yes. A contract without consideration is NOT a contract. I don't know what Doug meant. But the reality of it is, one or both parties must give something of value up for a contract to be enforceable. For example, I tell my friend that I'm going to give them $500. They say "OK". Later, I decide not to give him the money... That is not a contract. In order for it to be a contract, my friend must do something to "their detriment"... Ie, consideration.

It can get more complex at other times, but that is the nuts and bolts of it.

Absolutely! One element of a contract is consideration and this is one of the legal requirements for a valid contract. Absence of this element renders the contract "void ab initio".

You do need Consideration (money or monies worth) in order to form a legally binding Contract
