Fixing Individual Plosives

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.
