Some webcams have a built in microphone that is often good enough. If not, then you can use any decent microphone. The ones I have here are a $25US Plantronics headset with mic plugged into my Soundblaster Audigy card. Also have a Yeti Blue USB that works real well for recording live music and podcasts.

The Apps (just a sampling of what I use):
Audacity for audio recording and editing
Kino for video editing (not maintained)
wxcam | guvcview (record from webcam) Note: wxcam no audio and guvcview needs portaudio
kdenlive (nonlinear video editor and record audio and video)
openshot (nonlinear video editor)

You can record the audio with audacity and the video with another and then combine to transcode with kdeblive, for example.

You can also use ffmpeg and mplayer via bash scripts, but heck...I seem to misplace those...too tired to look up all the CLI options.

I haven't tried on 14 yet but I've used my Logitech Quickcam Pro 9000 on earlier versions.
