Domecast, our weekly podcast on government and politics in North Carolina, is ready for the weekend of Sept. 26-27.

This year’s long legislative session is finally nearing the finish line. Colin Campbell of The News & Observer and Ben Brown of The Insider discuss what’s left on the agenda and how legislators are pushing through last-minute bills.

Then we talk about legislation to move all 2016 primaries to March 15 and a controversial provision involving state party fundraising. Taylor Knopf of The N&O and Patrick Gannon of The Insider explain.

The N&O’s Craig Jarvis and Liz Bell join the other panelists for Headliners of the Week. This week’s nominees are Pope Francis, Rep. Jon Hardister, Sen. Dan Blue, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, Rep. David Lewis and Rep. Becky Carney.

Andy Curliss of The N&O hosts.
