She didn’t answer it. For the past 20 years, Julia’s been wondering what those girls wanted.Go to to subscribe to Homecoming and Gimlet's other new podcasts.Our SponsorsHello Fresh - To get $35 off your first week of deliveries visit 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 or download the app and use promo code “HEAVY” to receive $30 off your first monthWealthsimple – Investing made easy.
