Long distance podcasting: equipment, software, and how to make it work.

I am interested in doing a podcast with someone who is 5 hours away.
We often FaceTime and have used iChat and Skype. I would like to use a platform where we can see each other somehow. He has a more professional mic while I do not have one at all (we can get one, but that seems it might be irrelevant to the problems we're having). We both have Garage Band. He has Logic as well. We have tried a variety of set-ups. He is recording it on his end since he understands better than I do how to do such things. My levels show up on whatever outside equipment he is running me through, but do not actually record into Garage Band or Logic. I can record us into my Garage Band, but the sound quality isn't great. He got Call Recorder to work with Skype, but then you could only hear him on the left side while I was in stereo.
I fear we are overcomplicating this as other people seem to be able to do it. We have read through a lot of things about it, but can't seem to make a combination work for us. Any ideas for us, hivemind?
