The technique of speaking sideways to a microphone, rather than directly into it. This helps to reduce hissing, popping, and explosive sounds caused by your breath and lips.

I can pop my plosives like "p"s and "b"s or my dentals like "t"s and "d"s if I talk directly into a microphone, or I can talk across it slightly and smooth out the sound.
