Domecast, The News & Observer’s weekly podcast on government and politics in North Carolina, is ready for the weekend of Jan. 14-15.

Gov. Roy Cooper has nearly filled up his cabinet, so we'll explain who he picked for agency leadership roles this week and look back at the snowy inauguration festivities. We'll also discuss the legislature's first day back in 2017 and what to expect from them, as well as why a Supreme Court order could reduce the odds of a special legislative election this year.

And as always, we choose a Headliner of the Week.

Jordan Schrader of The News & Observer hosts with Colin Campbell, Craig Jarvis and Lynn Bonner.
