Pop filter or windscreen for condenser mic?

I'm recording talk "radio" with a condenser mic and I want to reduce the sound of my breathing and exhaling. aspirated plosives (such as the first 'p' in words) isn't the issue actually it's the sound of air from breaths that bother me. Should I get a pop filter or a windscreen or something else? Any particular kind of filter or screen?

Looking for something that isn't very expensive. Thank you.

I use the Stedman Proscreen 101 with my Neumann BCM104! Truly amazing combo!

Seriously, most of this problem can be eliminated by proper mic techniques and proper breathing. The condenser microphone is picking up your performance precisely as it occurs. If you can't learn to control the sounds, use a microphone that is more tolerant of breathing sounds...such as a dynamic microphone. Nothing personal here...just an observation backed by a lifetime of focus on performance.

Stop doing so much blow, Mr. Trump, and your breathing won't be so audible.
