I learn Finnish and this language comes off to me as a variety of Finnish. I remember Kven has already been featured in the quiz, so my answer is Meänkieli
Yes, he mentions “suomesta” (9:00) … It must be something close to Finnish, I suppose.
I, too, heard the words “suomesta” which clinches it for me as being somewhat kin to Finnish. I agree with Vyrpenz as to its being Meänkieli.
Yes, Meänkieli is a likely candidate because it is mentioned at 0:16 and 0:19, I think.
The language is Meänkieli, a Finnic language spoken along the valley of the Torne River in northern Sweden, and also in neighbouring parts of Finland.
The recording comes from YouTube
