Description

A short clip from our interview with famous phone phreak (telephone hacker) John Draper aka "Captain Crunch" aka "JD Crunchman." We shot this interview with Captain Crunch for the feature length documentary film Joybubbles. Find out more here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/rachaelmorrison/joybubbles-the-documentary-film In this clip, John Draper demonstrates the use of the whistle, found in Captain Crunch cereal boxes, to hack into the telephone system. This is how he got the nickname Captain Crunch. Under certain conditions, the 2600Hz tone produced by the whistle made it possible to hack into the analog telephone system in the 1960s and 1970s. (It is no longer possible to do this.)
