DEBUTS OCTOBER 7, 2015

The Cocktail Party Effect with Leslie Irish Evans is a lifestyle podcast for intellectual seekers who like new ideas, clever tips, and good stories. Each program features an interview with a guest (authors, coaches, chefs & more) and includes a recipe for a well-crafted cocktail. New episodes go up on Wednesdays.


Host Leslie Irish Evans is a Huffington Post blogger, freelancer writer, and author of Peeling Mom Off the Ceiling: Reclaiming Your Life From Your Kids (Poppybank Press, 2013)


As for the show’s name; it’s a real thing. Here’s the Wikipedia definition:


The cocktail party effect is the phenomenon of being able to focus one's auditory attention on a particular stimulus while filtering out a range of other stimuli, much the same way that a partygoer can focus on a single conversation in a noisy room. This effect is what allows most people to "tune into" a single voice and "tune out" all others.
