Domecast, The News & Observer’s weekly podcast on government and politics in North Carolina, is ready for the weekend of Dec. 24-25.

This week we talk about the special session called to repeal HB2 that ended without any action on the controversial law -- and with Republicans and Democrats pointing fingers at each other. We'll talk about what went wrong, and what's next for HB2. And we'll discuss whether recent special sessions could face a constitutional challenge in court.

Colin Campbell of The News & Observer hosts with Craig Jarvis and Will Doran.
