In the upcoming episode of Mormon Stories Podcast, we delve into the intriguing and controversial saga of Trevor Milton, founder of Nikola Corporation. This episode unpacks how Milton, once a celebrated entrepreneur, was unmasked as a fraud, leading to his recent sentencing of four years in prison. We explore the intricacies of his fraudulent activities at Nikola, a company that promised revolutionary electric trucks. Our special guest, Utah fraud expert Mark Pugsley, brings his insightful perspectives on the case, particularly focusing on the extent to which Milton’s Mormon background and the environment he was a part of may have played a role in this story. This episode promises to shed light on the complex interplay between personal beliefs, corporate ethics, and legal accountability in the high-stakes world of business and technology.

    The group photo posted at the end with Tim Ballard and others is priceless. It’s nearly identical to another group photo taken at Alpha Con and reviewed by the Deseret News. Enjoy!

    This is a fascinating deception, can’t believe that no one asked to pop the hood to see the engine compartment during the reveal and then at points subsequent. A classic “Emperor has no clothes”
