It's a memetic corruption of chapeau tarp hoser: a Canadianism for your friend who gets drunk and does dumb shit. Etymologically, taken from a hoser who would wrap himself in tarpaulin, and perform "antics."

lol this answer is amazing. but... its not referencing that (although I like this Canadianism more than the actual origin of the podcast's name).

El Chapo = Notorious Mexican drug cartel leader, and

Trap House is a term that people use in drug dealing referring to a building occupied by drug addicts to use in.

They named it this because "it sounds like a rap mixtape".
