On a special financial update episode of Mormonish Podcast, Rebecca and Landon are joined by Canadian tithing whistleblower, Nigel Kennett. In his profession as an accountant, Nigel stumbled upon the fact that the LDS church was sending $100,000,000 or more to BYU-Provo, BYU-Idaho, and BYU-Hawaii annually. After asking local leaders for clarification, he eventually took the information to a Canadian news program, The 5th Estate, which broadcasted an episode on LDS tithing in Canada. Nigel tell us about his life as a faithful member up until his discovery, which put him on a path that changed his life and shone a spotlight on LDS church finances for the world to see. We absolutey loved our conversation with Nigel and we know you will too. He's a wonderful, caring, ethical human being who had to speak out when he recognized something that while legal, is not ethical or moral. If you'd like to watch the orginal 5th Estate episode, we've linked it below.
