Domecast, our weekly podcast on government and politics in North Carolina, is ready for the weekend of Sept. 19-20.

The state budget compromise finally emerged this week and garnered approval from both chambers and Gov. Pat McCrory. We’ll hear a compilation of the debate’s highlights and get analysis from News & Observer reporter Colin Campbell.

Then guest host Patrick Gannon of The Insider sits down with McCrory to talk about why he signed the spending plan despite his concerns about tax changes.

And we wrap up with a different take on our “Headliners of the Week” segment, asking House legislators from both parties who they’d nominate as the “star” of Thursday’s floor debate.
