    When Matt says compression, is he referring to gzip? Is he saying that we should completely turn off gzip for sites that use TLS? Or can we at least upload already gzipped assets to a web server that uses TLS and then turn off automatic gzipping? How does this affect us in the real world?

    Please fix the audio recording quality of this podcast. It's difficult to listen when the volume is all over the place. This might be a wonderful podcast, but I can't bring myself to listen when the audio is this bothersome.
