Domecast, The News & Observer’s weekly podcast on government and politics in North Carolina, is ready for the weekend of Feb. 25-26.

The state Senate subpoenaed a member of Gov. Roy Cooper's Cabinet this week in an attempt to force participation in a confirmation hearing. And a new compromise proposal emerged on House Bill 2 repeal that is taking fire from left and right. Our panel of political journalists talks about both developments.

We hear from Wayne Goodwin, who recently took over as chairman of the state Democratic Party after losing his re-election bid as North Carolina’s insurance commissioner.

And we wrap up with Headliner of the Week.

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