Wednesday, Craigslist will take a step to protect the site's users by removing its "erotic services" ads. The change comes after the so-called "Craigslist killer" murdered a masseuse who listed her services on the classified ad site.

Jim Buckmaster, CEO of Craigslist, joins host Neal Conan to discuss his company's decision.
