Me1 vs Me2 Snooker with Richard Herring
A series of exhibition snooker matches in which Richard Herring recreates his lonely childhood by playing himself at snooker and commentating as he plays. Who will win Me 1 or Me 2 and is there any real difference between these closely matched players? Will their different personalities shine through? And how much of this can you listen to before you become as unhinged as Me1, Me2 and the commentator Mes? This really is just a grown man playing snooker against himself on a wonky 6ft by 3ft snooker table in a room which is not quite big enough. WARNING: This is an incredibly self-indulgent and boring podcast. You only have yourself to blame if you listen and then become hooked and begin to favour one of the two Mes over the other.
Frame 57 - Ill-Judged. Bad tempers, poor shot-choice and unpleasant opinions add up to make this one of the most scintillating and upsetting frames of snooker between one man that you are ever likely to hear in audio format. But perhaps we see in the play (both the snooker play and the play that is human life) where anger and bitterness come from. Or perhaps we don't. It gets deeply political too. This really is the podcast with everything. See Richard on tour
