Even though JavaScript is by far the most popular client side programming language in use today, it can and is used on the server side as well.

Too much code for an audiobook

It's hard to follow when he reads the code. If you don't write it on the computer as you listen to this record (clicking stop every 5 sec), you could be also easily lost in the verbal language of the code. It's a short résumé of the javascript language, but I think it could have been better if it had include less code and more explanation.

angle bracket

opening and closing angle brackets are read as the "greater than" and "less than" which I found confusing and distracting while trying to follow. (the reason the inequality symbols are used when written is that ASCII does not have angle bracket characters, however they still are meant as brackets not operators and that is how it makes sense to read them)
