The District is a seven-part podcast from the Stuff Circuit investigative team. It's a story about injustice, but mostly it's a story about people. People who are trying to get on with their lives, but can't. It centres on an infamous unsolved murder case, in a rural district of New Zealand: examining the colourful characters involved and their unending search for justice, the kicks in the guts, the suspicions, and the fresh clues - could they hold the answer to New Zealand's most notorious cold case? The District is also about another strange death; another family gripped by a sense of injustice, desperately seeking answers. The two cases end up colliding in the most unexpected way. Injustice is like a disease. There's always a starting point, patient zero. But it never stops there.

Well told

Really enjoyed. Definitely differed from the usual investigation style from Stuff, but was great to have a new style of telling a crime story. What really impressed me was the self awareness & sensitivity, which Eugene & the team applied in the telling of this story. They could have easily been malicious or critical with all the players in this mix. Credit to you all, nice to see journalism not being so sensational focused.

Great Series!

Hooked in the first 5 minutes of episode 1.

It’s ok

This podcast can’t really decide what it’s doing. Is it investigating the Crewe murders and links to police cover ups or is it dancing around a present day work place accident and trying to make tenuous links back to the past? They fail to do both really...
