The 'After Life' star will be joined by neuroscientist Sam Harris on his new podcast 'Absolutely Mental' where he will discuss the likes of "morality, mortality, human evolution and the meaning of life".

Speaking on his YouTube channel about his new venture, Ricky said: "It's on the subject of free will, dreams, morality, mortality, human evolution, religion, the meaning of life, comedy, free speech, altruism and kindness, what makes us, where we're from, where we're going, the future, philanthropy and artificial intelligence, so everything about what we worry about. It's mainly about the brain and the mind. It's great, Sam Harris just knows everything ... We've both got philosophy degrees, we've both got a background in science. He obviously went further than me, he's a neuroscientist ..."

Meanwhile, Ricky previously insisted he doesn't fear dying.
