Domecast, our weekly podcast on government and politics in North Carolina, is ready for the weekend of Jan. 23-24.

It’s a full house this week, with the entire capital team present and accounted for – The News & Observer’s Colin Campbell, Craig Jarvis and Lynn Bonner teamed with Patrick Gannon and Benjamin Brown of the Insider State Government News Service.

Campbell walks us through some odd, upcoming re-dos on a series of municipal elections in North Carolina. Jarvis brings us the latest on the offshore drilling debate and what may be ahead.

Bonner looks at the state’s efforts to improve mental health care and the latest approaches for treatment and recovery. Gannon gives the latest on teacher pay and how one lawmaker thinks that will be a “top of the fold” issue for the short legislative session to begin in late April.

We wrap up, as always, with Headliners of the Week. Brown is in the hosting chair.
