I used to do the remote end of two-ways for the CBC, BBC and NPR.
This was before the Internets, so I would typically send the tape to
the producer via overnight express. For NPR feeds, I would send the
audio through a satellite uplink.
I think the usual approach would be to copy each end of the
conversation on a separate track of the two-channel production tape,
so overlapping speech would not be a problem in small doses.
