Domecast, our weekly podcast on government and politics in North Carolina, is ready for the weekend of Feb. 13-14.

A federal court’s order to redraw two North Carolina congressional districts dominated this week’s news as it sowed confusion around the upcoming March primaries. Craig Jarvis of The News & Observer and Ben Brown of The Insider break down the developments.

Then we take a look at the more minor political headlines that drew our attention this week: Sen. Thom Tillis’ Super Bowl poetry, a McCrory administration official who compared solar panels to coal ash, and the ongoing saga of a DMV employee accused of using his position to peddle fire extinguishers.

As always, we close out with our Headliners of the Week segment.

Colin Campbell of The News & Observer hosts.
