As a pilot with 200 hours....the way this expert is explaining how general aviation works sounds like total madness if you think of it from a lay persons pov

I herd that one of the pilots had a habit of getting high

My theory as to what happened is the piper was on a straight-in approach while the Cessna was in the traffic pattern. The piper was making a fast descent while the Cessna was making a tight base. The piper could have been focusing on the approach while the Cessna was focusing on making the tricky base-to-final turn (which I know from experience) the Cessna might have neglected announcing the checkpoints on the traffic pattern because of how quiet the airport is. Meanwhile the piper was likely trying to perfectly line up the approach, focusing on making sure the plane was ready to land, and missed the Cessna below.
