First, we dig into the Fortune 500 list and highlight some of this year’s big trends. Fortune editor Alan Murray and assistant managing editor Brian O’Keefe discuss the plight of some industries and which sectors are primed for success. Plus, our senior special correspondent Susie Gharib sat down with some of this year’s Fortune 500 CEOs. We recap their insights and outlook on the U.S economy.

Then, of the 15 newcomers to the list, only one is led by a woman. Susie Gharib sits down with the CEO of Veritiv (VRTV) to talk about what it means to be on the Fortune 500.

Next, this is the first year Paypal (PYPL) notched a spot as a Fortune 500 company. Andrew talks about the company’s future with CEO Daniel Schulman.

Then, Fortune‘s Michal Lev-Ram explains how streaming giant Netflix (NFLX) managed to shoot up 95 spots on this year’s Fortune 500 list.

What’s the future of the Fortune 500? Erin Griffith and Anne VanderMey join the show to discuss how and why the makeup of companies on the list will continue to shift.

And speaking of innovation, we visit Hormel Foods (HRL) to discover how the company is striving to appeal to millennials’ taste buds.
