Hendiadys – Fresh Air, 12-18-14

[does contain discussion of homosexuality and prostitution]

A nice example because the hendiadys itself is implicitly described as the Terry Gross and Robert Beachy discuss the connection between blackmail and homosexuality. The very need for such a discussion is created by the hendiadys. If the name were not a hendiadys (say, The Department of Blackmail Related to Homosexuality), there would be no need for such a discussion.
