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.
