I enjoyed the first video a lot as have have been putting off trying to 
do recording like this as I didn't know where to start. My background is 
mainly live mixing and this gives me incentive to diversify.
Dynamic EQ would be the best way to improve the current audio as it will 
only cut the problem frequency when the level goes over a threshold. 
Normal EQ applied to the whole track would make the non-offending bits 
sound thinner. You could fine tune a multiband compressor to do this 
too. Personally I thought the breathy noises were noticeable but not 
greatly annoying.
In future speak a little off mic to reduce those breath plosives.
I will watch your other videos soon and look forward to future episodes. 
Thank you for taking the time and energy to make them!

Cheers, Roger
