Fortune Live for April 7, 2016: Tilman Fertitta, Casper Mattresses, and Hacking Smartphones

We have a great lineup today for Fortune Live, our weekly business show hosted this week by senior editor Andrew Nusca.

Fortune writers Erin Griffith and Jen Wieczner kick us off discussing this week’s news: Pfizer (PFE) and Allergan (AGN) calling off their mega-merger and Twitter’s (TWTR) plan to stream 10 Thursday night NFL games. We then play a round of “Flop or Fly” to weigh in on some of the biggest moves companies made this week.

Then, we’ll show you how to hack into someone’s phone using Play-Doh. Fortune writer Jeff John Roberts has Jason Chaikin from Vkansee Fingerprint Sensors show us how.

Next, you may not know the company Landry’s, but you definitely know one of the many businesses it owns. Fortune senior editor Andrew Nusca sits down with CEO and sole owner Tilman Fertitta to talk about his new reality show, Billion Dollar Buyer.

We continue with our new series “Really?!” as Fortune’s Ben Geier analyzes Bernie Sanders’ comments on how high voter turnouts impact elections.

Andrew Nusca then sits down with Philip Krim, cofounder and CEO of online mattress company Casper, to see what’s next for the company.

Then, we asked some of Fortune’s Most Powerful Women what advice they would give their 20-year-old selves.

We close our show with a rundown of the fastest-growing, female-owned businesses.

The full show and individual segments will be available to watch on demand after the show concludes. You can find them at fortune.com/fortunelive.
