Mixing Radio Drama in Binaural

I''ve recorded radio drama as standard with a standard condenser U87 microphone. I didn't have access to those fancy dummy heads. My question is, is it possible to create a binaural mix without the dummy heads. I'm going to be using the binaural panner in logic but this is my first attempt mixing in binaural.

The binaural panner appears to be an implementation of HRTF, and there are other plugins that make the same claim.

HRTF processing works, but getting it right is complex. Everybody's head and pinna is slightly different, and simulating what you'll hear with a sound in space while listening with close earphones is always going to be just an approximation. But try it.

Two questions:

What do you do about listeners with speakers in random spaces, or off center, or both (like in a car, where most people listen to radio)? Or is your intent a podcast that's heard only on earbuds?

How will you deal with stereo sources, like produced music or sfx libraries?

Yes, this should be in the Immersive forum. And yes, I've done this using Dolby Atmos with what I thought were great results. I refer to it as "synthetic binaural." Lots of fun.

The Sennheiser ambeo orbit plug in is not bad at all. And free.

I played around with Dolby Atmos Production suite for binaural output and it was very convincing.
I also played around with Fraunhofer's binaural tools as a tester that was very good. I don't think it's available.

With the Dolby production suite binaural output, my wife, who is a random person audiowise , could tell when something was panned to the rear 100% of the time.
Pretty impressive.
Height did not work b.t.w.
