Richard Herring Me1 v Me2 Snooker. Richard Herring. 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 49 - 9/11. On Remembrance Sunday the players make their own poorly judged tributes to those who have fallen in combat and those who died in the tragedy of the 9th of November. But they're playing for something much more important than that: Who is the father of the baby that Me1's wife is carrying? There's some terrible things said, some awful commentating and some of the worst refereeing ever seen in this competition. Richard Herring would like to distance himself from the opinions and statements of all the Mes, including himself. Let the snooker do the talking.
