Bleeding Cool welcomes back The Orbiting Pod, the podcast of Orbital Comics in London.

They say:

Welcome to another special episode of The Orbiting Pod!

With the new movie Captain America: The Winter Soldier in cinemas worldwide, we've decided to spotlight some of Steve Rogers greatest stories from across the decades.

We kick things off with Captain America: Marvel Masterworks 3, looking at Jack Kirby's return to the character he co-created with Joe Simon over 20 years prior, and the short run by the iconic Jim Steranko.

Next, we skip forward to that dark time that was the 90′s, and Mark Waid's first run on the character with Ron Garney in Operation Rebirth.

Getting a bit more current, we look back at the beginning of Ed Brubaker & Steve Epting's landmark run with the Winter Soldier storyline.

Finally, we investigate Jason Latour & Nic Klein's short run on Bucky's own book, with Winter Soldier: The Electric Ghost.
