I don't do audio at this level, and don't read lips, so video helps not.

What does he say?

That example seems to be about connecting directly through the VPN,
either accidentally forgetting to use Tor, or leaking through
misconfiguration. And then going on to acknowledge that it's Perfect
Privacy. There's maybe even something about acknowledging a leak of the
actual ISP-assigned IP address.

But anyway, that's all stupidity. There's nothing about vulnerability of
the "VPN -> Tor" approach. Poor implementation is the fail.

I don't see anything here re "VPN -> Tor" meaning "go to jail".

What am I missing here?
