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.
