I believe you can do it, you just have to background the tasks you
want to do in parallel using the ampersand. So you might do
hart at laptop$ at 8am

to have it enqueue both jobs to trigger at 8am.

Selenium is used for driving a web browser in a recorded/repeatable
fashion. It might be feasible to use/abuse it for such purposes if
the website doesn't offer a direct download link you can use.
However, if it does, using "wget", "curl" or possibly "nc" (netcat)
might be a better option for downloading a stream from a website.
If the website offers the feed via RSS instead of live-streaming for
the programming you desire, you'd be far better off just using a
pod-catcher like "hpodder" to snag it all with minimal fuss.
