In brief: Eustachian tube

There is a tube connecting the floor of your middle ear to the back of your throat.
It serves as a portal to allow air in and accumulated mucous out of the middle ear space. When it swells from allergies,a cold, or other reason, the process can stop and function erratically The cracking you hear is air movement..
