Interview - John Draper aka 'Captain Crunch' on Russian Hacks, Protecting your Privacy, Hacking the Medical System, Witnessing a Nuclear Blast, Adventures with Woz and Jobs. 

Listen Now to John Draper aka Captain Crunch

We catch up with the Captain after he has sustained some serious back surgery in Las Vegas and is recuperating.  What does the grandfather of  computer hacking have to say about the Russian exploits of the US Election process? John also gives us some great tips on protecting our privacy, like what apps to use, and regales us with some of his favorite tales with the founders of Apple Computer, Woz and Jobs. 

Plus there is the earlier story of his witnessing an above ground nuclear blast in the Nevada desert in the early 1960’s, a particularly memorable event. This and many other stories are in his just about to be published biography, “Beyond the Little Blue Box, co-written with  Craig Wilson Fraser.

John also gives us an update on his physical condition, which has been subject to some complex back surgery of late, and his hacking of the medical system, especially in finding online info that can aid in his recovery.  A unique explorer at the intersection of technology and the human spirit, we think you’ll both learn from and enjoy listening to the ‘Captain.’  And if you can find it in your heart to contribute to his medical recovery fund, that would be insanely great..

John Draper aka Captain Crunch shares info on Mobile Phone Security and Election Fraud

Listen Now to John Draper aka Captain Crunch

This week we feature our interview with John Draper, aka Captain Crunch, a well-known American computer hacker and friend, who shares with us previously unknown vulnerabilities of the global cell phone network, specifically the SS7 Signaling System, which dates back 40 years, before the Internet and modern day telecommunications.  

John also shares info on the best apps to use on your smart phone for secure encrypted communications, especially Signal, from Open Whisper Systems.  We also delve into election voting fraud and John shares a personal story that may have bigger implications.. Enjoy!

P.S. John is open to email contact directly with the public, but please use only encrypted services if you want to discuss something privately with him..via the audio/text apps, use Signal and Wickr. For secure video use Jitsi when possible. Otherwise Skype will work. John’s moniker is “jdcrunchman” with most of these services and other less secure systems, like Messenger, Whatsapp, Facetime, or Gmail.
