If you’re of a certain vintage, like me, the name CBC Street Cents is sure to trigger memories from adolescence. The popular Canadian TV show, aimed at teenagers, originally aired on CBC Television between 1989 and 2006. Streets Cents is making a comeback, but this time, it’s not on TV. This week, I sat down to chat with two of the lead content creators for the new Street Cents: Carley Thorne and Mercedes Gaztambide. Carley Thorne is a designer, and comedian. She has spent time at Toronto’s Second City and toured North America performing sketch comedy. She translated her love of books into a successful YouTube channel with over 150K subscribers. Mercedes Gaztambide is a new graduate from Ryerson University with a degree in Journalism. Born and raised in Boston, her love of reading and writing started in Harvard University Libraries. Her goal is to find the truth in every story and prepare the next generation of critical thinkers. She knows what her credit score is and can help you find yours. I asked Carley and Mercedes about the upcoming Street Cents Reboot, and we talked about some of the key financial challenges facing young Canadians in 2022.
