Podcast pick: Earp Chirp


Published in The Pulse

Earp Chirp is back in the saddle to nerd out about Wynonna Earp, the supernatural Western horror series shot in Alberta and beloved by fans the world over.

The TV series "follows Wyatt Earp's great granddaughter as she battles demons and other creatures" in a town called Purgatory (a.k.a. Didsbury). Earp Chirp is "a podcast by Albertans, about Albertans, but for all Earpers," hosted by Erika Ensign, Annette Wierstra, and Kirsten Goruk for The Incomparable network.

The hosts were part of the loyal fanbase that campaigned hard to get the show renewed after Season 3. Filming resumed in early 2020, but was interrupted by the pandemic, so the first half of Season 4 aired last summer, and the second half is slated to start in March. The fight is on again to keep it going, not only from fans but also from Keep Alberta Rolling.

Besides the Season 4 return show, you might also enjoy their live show from the Edmonton Expo in 2019, which dives into the #FightForWynonna campaign.

Earp Chirp is a product of Edmonton's own Castria, which produces the venerable Radio Free Skaro, the multi-Hugo-award-winning Uncanny Magazine Podcast, and the audio version of Taproot's Tech Roundup, among many, many other podcasts.
