Domecast, our weekly podcast on government and politics in North Carolina, is ready for the weekend of April 2-3.
The state’s new law limiting local nondiscrimination ordinances and addressing transgender bathroom use continued to have ripple effects this week, with more businesses coming out in opposition to the law and supporters digging in for a long fight.
Will Doran of PolitiFact North Carolina sorts through the facts and fiction in the debate, and explains why Gov. Pat McCrory got a “false” rating on the Truth-O-Meter. Andy Specht of The News & Observer explains how local elected officials are reacting – and how an obscure 1950s Raleigh bathroom ordinance has become part of the conversation. And The N&O’s Craig Jarvis talks about the possible election year impacts.
We wrap up, as always, with Headliners of the Week. Colin Campbell of The N&O hosts.
