Fixing Audio Spill Between 2 Mics?

I run a podcast in a sound treated studio, but my 2 mics (both condenser) are placed relatively close to each other so there is audio spill in the final audio, I'm recording in multi-track, so I can remove it by hand, but I was wondering if there is a more efficient way to do this. I'm using Audition CC 2017 to record and edit

I can only think of one easy (well relatively easy...) way to do this automatically. You'd need to use the signal from one of your tracks to 'duck' the other track so that it was a lot quieter whilst the first mic was active. And you'd have to do the same thing the other way around (start with the raw track, not the processed one). The only real snag with this is what happens if both contributors speak at the same time, but since you'd be creating an automation track, you could modify those bits by hand afterwards, the problem being of course that they'd duck each other!

I'll be the first to admit that I haven't tried this (I always fix these things at source, or don't bother to correct them, as generally they sound fine), but I'd be intrigued to know whether it's workable or not, as a lot of people seem to run into this issue. I might set up an experiment later to see what happens...

Thanks, I'm giving it a go now! Looking forward to seeing how it'll work, in theory it should but you never know!
