Good episode as always. Kinda wish Rachael would tell Lena outright that she had two half siblings out there. That’s not something that’s going to cross a 10 year olds mind to ask. Even if Rachael had no idea how to facilitate a meet up now, it’d be something Lena could chew on and reach out herself if she wanted via Facebook a few years down the road...

In grade 8, Julia was bullied so badly by a group of girls that she changed schools without telling anyone. Soon after, the girls from her old school showed up at her house and rang her doorbell. She didn’t answer it. For the past 20 years, Julia’s been wondering what those girls wanted.Go to GimletMedia.com/FallSeason to subscribe to Homecoming and Gimlet's other new podcasts.Our SponsorsHello Fresh - To get $35 off your first week of deliveries visit hellofresh.com and enter promo code "HEAVYWEIGHT"Mailchimp – More than 12 million people use MailChimp to connect with their customers, market their products, and grow their businesses every day.Talkspace - Visit talkspace.com/heavy or download the app and use promo code “HEAVY” to receive $30 off your first monthWealthsimple – Investing made easy.
