Why should I? The question that creeps into every woman’s mind yet often goes unanswered. The “should’s” in life are numerous, controlling, and overwhelming.

Why should I apologize?

Why should I be grateful?

Why should I choose the life I want?

This podcast is a place for real women to have real conversations about the “should’s” in life, and together we can realize that those “should’s” don’t have to take control. You are not alone, and you can forge the life you want.

Why Should I Podcast

The idea for the podcast came to host Holly Ybarrola after writing an article for The Everygirl, “Why Choosing to Not Have Children Is Okay”. She was surprised by the number of comments from women who had also contemplated this “should” and felt alone in their journey. This spurred Holly to keep wondering: Why should I? Why do I make certain life choices? Is it my choice or society’s choice?

The purpose of this podcast is to objectively search for answers, connect women, and promote positivity.
