Not quite - that's driven by user recommendations - see also last.fm.

I'm interested in having podcasters to turn the show recommendations  
they often make into relationships within podfamily.net. Initially at  
least there will be no input from listeners.

Podcasters will sign up, add shows (they have to place a cookie in  
the show's RSS to prove they're responsible for it) and then they can  
recommend other shows. So pretty quickly you'll have a dataset that  
describes the relationships between the different podcasts - from  
which you can extract fuzzy 'channels' - loose affiliations of shows  
based on recommendations.
