A list of Ember podcasts

Have a quick overview of the four Ember podcasts that are out there and a small list of selected Ember episodes.

Ember weekend

Ember weekend is sponsored by Hashrocket, a Rails consultancy. It is hosted by Chase McCarthy (@code0100fun) and Jonathan Jackson (@rondale_sc), both developers at Hashrocket. Topics discussed are news, features, events and tools being used to do Ember development.

Frontside the Podcast

Frontside the Podcast is done by The Frontside, an Austin-based software studio. It is hosted by Charles Lowell (@cowboyd) and Brandon Hays (@tehviking).

It's like hanging out at The Frontside software studio.

C. Lowell is The Frontside founder; B. Hays is a marketer turned programmer, working at The Frontside too.

Check the episode Ember-Metal, HTMLbars, and the death of script tags, it goes through one of the biggest changes that Ember has gone, so definitely a good listen.
