How can we set up our car so people in the back can take part in conversations happening up front?

I find that on long highway car trips, conversation gets segmented horizontally, with the front seats talking together and the back seats talking together. This is mostly because people in the front can hear everyone pretty well (since the people behind them are facing forward), but the people in the back of the car can't hear the people in front unless those people yell or twist around in their seats (neither conducive to long conversations). This is compounded with three-row cars like minivans.
Any ideas on hacks to increase everyone's audibility? How do other people deal with this? I'm wondering if there is a cheap way to attach a mike to the sound system so people in front are more audible throughout the car.
