Question about mic positioning

Thanks for a great episode - needless to say the audio is great : -) also the topic is interesting and useful. I'm just coming back to the podcasts and listening to some older shows. Re: avoiding sibilant and popping sounds - and "angling the mic" - do we move the mic 20 degrees off to the side - or vertically? Do we move the mic position in 3d space or do we just keep it in the same position but angle it's direction 20 degrees vertically/horizontally? Thanks for the episode. Much appreciated.
