SAN ANTONIO -- Geekdom Media announced the launch of its new podcast called The Fundamentals on Thursday.

  • Former Spurs player and NBA Hall of Famer
  • Will speak on inspiration for IDEA Carver Academy
  • Other topics on life experiences and principles

The podcast features former San Antonio Spurs player and NBA Hall of Famer David Robinson and his son, David Robinson Jr. Also speaking from the perspective of a Navy veteran, education philanthropist, and investor, Robinson’s The Fundamentals will touch on the life stories and experiences that led him to the creation of his school, the IDEA Carver Academy, located on the East Side.

The podcast will also cover the pillars that the school was founded upon, based largely on the principles of George Washington Carver, an influential figure to Robinson and his family, as well as some foundational rules the Robinson’s live by: faith, service, leadership, integrity, discipline, and initiative.




“I’m thrilled to collaborate with Geekdom Media and use The Fundamentals as an open discussion with my son on heartfelt topics that may make a difference in someone’s life,” said Robinson. “This podcast represents real experiences and life lessons and it’s exciting to share resources that have helped me along my journey.”

Much of David Jr.’s commentary will be drawn from his experiences as a founding member of Blueprint Local, an investment strategy company targeting businesses and real estate investments in opportunity zones to promote inclusive economic growth in distressed areas, along with the knowledge he gained from working in sports.
