Wind screens and foam pop filters are excellent at mitigating P-popping sounds from ruining an audio recording.
For anyone who lacks access to those specialized tools, Dan demonstrates a handy, easy hack that requires only a pencil and a rubber band. By affixing the pencil to the side of the microphone, placed such that the tip of the pencil points directly at the mouth of the speaker, the pencil acts as a pop-filter by literally splitting the air wall which is created during speech. It pops the bubble that speaking the letter P forms, and in so doing eliminates the harsh attack on the microphone's diaphragm.
The surprising result? No more popping.
