If you are using wireless mics you have to have 2 seperate systems, 1 transmitter/receiver for each mic. you can run these into a mixer and then to the camera or you could, and this is the way I would, run each mics receiver into each audio input on the camera.

Thanks Jeffery, I think I will run each through separate inputs on the cam. Will I still get good stereo sound?

That depends on what you mean by stereo sound. 2 channels of audio is stereo techicially, but you are probably meaning it's pickup pattern. If you use the 2 wireless mics as the inputs to the 2 audio inputs on the camera, these will be the only mics picking up any sound so you won't have a mic picking up the general sound of the room you are in. so the sound will just be the 2 speakers talking. In your post editing you can make both channels mono, meaning they are on both the left and right audio output equally or you can pan one mic to left and the other to right for a true stereo effect.

My opinion would be to have both as mono in the edit process since you don't know what the end user will be using to play this back and if it is not stereo the audio may not be as good as if you left both as mono.

What camera are you using?

Not really, the problem will be if you are expecting any audience partisipation and need to pick them up as well.
