Dear  W3C QA dev folks,

When I enter:
http://www.wnyc.org/feeds/shows/notetoself/
into the Feed Validation Service viewable here:
https://validator.w3.org/feed/check.cgi?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.wnyc.org%2Ffeeds%2Fshows%2Fnotetoself%2F

The first error that comes up complains that our image urls are https instead of http.  We are trying to move as much infrastructure toward https as possible, which seems to accord with best-practices these days.  It seems like the validator should check for regex 'https?://' instead of 'http://'.

cheers,
