Im trying to work out the details of having someone on my show through teleconference and Iím a total novice and brand new to this equipment. (My show is normally just me narrating so never had guests on before)

I use a focusrite solo interface and plug my Headphones directly into the interface to monitor. Is there a way I can still monitor myself and hear the person?

For the podcast audio I think my plan is to have them record themselves and send me an audio file. Iíll do a clap over their speakers so we can sync up and then have them put headphones on to record so there isnít an echo. Let me know if itís more complicated than I think it is.
