It is (obviously) better to avoid getting them in the first place by correct mic placement. See this article.

However, the occasional popping 'p' (which is actually breath on the mic and a very low frequency sound) can be isolated and treated with a High Pass Filter. Make sure your selection begins and ends on the horizontal line (by clicking the Z key). Then click Effect > High Pass Filter, and using settings of roll-off 12dB and cut-off frequency 100 Hz, click OK. The popping sound should be decreased.
