some recorders have 2 channels, so the interviewer and interviewee can
both have their own microphone. The Marantz compact flash recorder PCM
660 has this. If it's important for both to be recorded clearly, this
would be your best option. Or, you could use a splitter and have two
mics going into a single channel.
