CANOGA PARK, Calif., Jan. 17, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — “The Able Show,” a groundbreaking series created by Davina Douthard, is the latest addition to the podcasting world. The show is a collaboration between Polishing the Professional (PTP), a job training and placement program, and Dream Magic Studios (DMS) – a state-of-the-art production studio. The show interviews celebrity guests, pop-culture figures, and inspiring individuals from disabled and non-disabled communities. The Able Show podcast further promises to explore crucial subjects through the voices of individuals with disabilities. The first episode will debut on January 29, 2024. The show is available on its official website https://theableshow.com and various podcast platforms, offering a fresh perspective on intriguing topics such as entertainment, sports, human rights, and more!
The first five episodes of The Able Show feature special guests such as creator and executive producer Davina Douthard, legendary comedian Joe Torry, global recording sensation and equality activist Tennille Amor, fashion house Rogers Pearson, and comedian extraordinaire Na’im Lynn. What sets “The Able Show” apart is that individuals with disabilities run the show: Olden Polynice, Scott Ealey, Rebecca Cristancho, and Bruna Bertossi host the show. Most people know Polynice from his 17-year NBA career but don’t know he was born with a disability and was never supposed to walk—Ealey, who has autism but, despite his communication challenges, is an extraordinary co-host.

Davina Douthard, Executive Producer and CEO of PTP, shares the inspiration behind the podcast: “I have helped individuals with disabilities find employment since 1998. During that time, I recognized most people severely underestimated them by focusing on limitations. Although PTP is outstanding at job placement, placing nearly 300 clients in direct competitive employment in over a year, I had clients who wanted to work in the entertainment industry. However, the support systems available don’t favor the entertainment industry’s gig economy, so I set out to help clients find training and employment opportunities in film and television.”
To immerse yourself in exciting guests and the empowering stories of “The Able Show,” mark your calendar for the pilot episode release on January 29, 2024.
