Shannon Connellan

Shannon Connellan is Mashable's UK Editor based in London, formerly Mashable's Australia Editor, but emotionally, she lives in the Creel House. A Tomatometer-approved critic, Shannon writes about everything (but not anything) across entertainment, tech, social good, science, and culture.

Shannon's written on topics from space trash to Heartstopper, the rise of drag on Twitch, Viking teeth tattoos in The Northman, Malala Yousafzai's book club, meditation apps, knitwear on Only Murders in the Building, climate change docs, Lizzo's reality show, Mars mission launches, Keanu Reeves' graphic novel, Uber Boat, Steve McQueen's documentaries, sustainable design, non-dinosaurs, must-read books, getting messed up by Titane, and reviewing all the retro-magical TVA tech in Loki.

Historically, Shannon's encouraged people to dig into every morsel of their cities as Managing Editor of Concrete Playground, and she used to force people listen to her music taste at New York's East Village Radio and Sydney's FBi Radio, where she produced and presented shows, ran the office, and edited the blog. She's also written for every street press that would pay her in Fast and the Furious tickets.
