This is about recording simultaneously microphone input and the computer's audio (soundcard) so you can do a radio/podcast style recording

Found out the device name of the "monitor"... using the pactl command...

pactl list | grep .monitor

Now you have a device called pulse_monitor that you can use with arecord

Then added this to the file / create this file: /etc/asound.conf

pcm.pulse_monitor {
  type pulse
  device alsa_output.pci-0000_00_1b.0.analog-stereo.monitor
}

ctl.pulse_monitor {
  type pulse
  device alsa_output.pci-0000_00_1b.0.analog-stereo.monitor
}

podcast.sh

#!/bin/bash
output=${1:-podcast}
arecord -Dpulse_monitor -f cd ${output}_sc.wav &
arecord -Dpulse -f cd ${output}_mic.wav
